Karate ranks userboxes

I want to create user boxes for each belt-rank of Shotokan karate. I was thinking of having the shotokan tiger in it, to the left, with a message "This user is a brown belt karateka" with a brown background, for instance. I'd have another for each rank.

Anyone interested in helping with this?

The first one is from the Honorverse series of novels by David Weber, if anyone's wondering. The Royal Manticoran Navy are the "good guys" in the series. The second box is to denote members of the United States Army Military Intelligence branch. The color for the box itself is as close as I could fiddle it to the actual branch color. (They're my first boxes, but I like how they turned out.)

Code Result
Shotokan karate.jpg This user is a 9th kyu Shotokan karateka

The two arguments for the Kyu-rank userbox are:

  1. kyu rank (generally 9 through 1)
  2. colour of belt used (since clubs use varying colour schemes)

I've found that the basic colours are not good for the belt colours (example: using 'brown' as the second parameter looks more like a dark pink). See examples on Drmadskills/Userboxes for good sample colours.

And the dan-rank userbox:

Code Result
Shotokan karate.jpg This user is a 1st dan Shotokan karateka

The argument for the Dan-rank userbox is:

  1. dan rank (generally 1 through 9)

I couldn't decide if I should use "1st dan" or "shodan". Any suggestions?
