    Why, in the last IJF coaches and referees seminar (held last week), Adams was still wearing a kohaku belt? https://youtu.be/73rPADP4zNY?t=6487
    Shouldn't he wear a solid red belt, being a 9th dan?

    That is a young Neil Adams in the days when both judoka in a contest wore white judogi, and the first name called wore a red belt.  It is not a photo of Neil as a 9 dan.
