Red belt is the third earned rank in the Viam Chao system after Blue Belt. It is typically awarded between 9-12 months after blue, if a student can demonstrate sufficient knowledge of more advanced techniques. The color red signifies that the concepts are "running through their veins", unofficially the color blood (a student has bled in pursuit of knowledge).

Red belt practitioners are considered knowledgeable enough to begin teaching Viam Chao.


Students in the red belt level learn to work with the baton or escrima stick, as these types of weapons can be implemented easily.
