Some people say this is the most important belt, but they’re wrong. You absolutely suck as a white belt. Your jiu jitsu is terrible and you gas out constantly because you are too tense. Training is largely an exercise in frustration as you get repeatedly pummeled into the mats.
This is the third iteration of our ever-popular BJJ (jiu jitsu) belt.
Our first jiu jitsu belts were extremely thick, with heavy kanji embroidery. Our second batch of jiu jitsu belts was very different, coming in a soft, pre-washed fabric that hung loose around the body. Now for our third batch of belts, we’ve come up with a balance of the two, with a sturdy, midweight belt with a beautiful high definition woven label.
The theme of the label, and the belt itself, is “Enjoyment and Endurance”. We feel this sums up the experience of training jiu jitsu and progressing through the ranks – sometimes you are enjoying yourself, sometimes you are merely enduring. Both aspects of training are important and both have their benefits that will contribute to you becoming a well-rounded jiu jitsu athlete, and person.
These belts follow the IBJJF guidelines for belts to be worn in competition.
Always remember the wise words of Mr Miyagi:
Mr. Miyagi: In Okinawa, belt mean no need rope to hold up pants. [laughs; then, seriously] Daniel-san, karate here. [taps his head] Karate here. [taps his heart] Karate never here. [points to his belt] Understand?
The length of these belts is as follows, although you can basically order according to your gi size. If you are in doubt, or in between sizes, you should probably get the size above and gradually shrink it down.
A0 – 225cm
A1 – 255cm
A2 – 290cm
A3 – 305cm
A4 – 320cm
A5 – 335cm
