We were super pumped to see Master Renzo Gracie wearing his custom BJJ black belt from ChokeSports.com in the promo video for his newest gym in New York City...

With top notch Gracie Jiu-Jitsu instruction from Renzo himself and long time friend and student Luca Atalla, the new school is the perfect complement to nearby Columbia University and the Lincoln Center. The academy offers fantastic facilities - with the traditional blue mats! - in the Upper West Side neighborhood which has the reputation of being New York City's cultural hub.

Luca Atalla is the former editor-in-chief of the famous Gracie Magazine publication and the man behind gallerr.com, the online Jiu-Jitsu academy that offers exclusive content from Rickson Gracie 😲 and many other masters. He has a wealth of knowledge to share having witnessed closely the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu boom since the 1990s in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

We receive many requests for logo embroidery on our Isami belts from Japan. Because we've been making black belts for Renzo and his team for many years now, we already have his logo on file. If you'd like to have your own logo embroidered on a new belt from ChokeSports, please contact our support team and we'll be glad to assist you with the order 👍.

What Customers Are Saying About Chokesports

Isami has been around forever and nothing beats the hand made quality. Black Belts are so hard to earn, and you wear them for so long, that you need to spend the extra dollars and wear a ChokeSports belt.

Kirkor B. Connecticut, USA

My overall experience has been awesome. The quality and the detail of the items are simply second to none. Plus the best customer service I have ever experienced. I can't thank you enough!

Steve T. Nevada, USA

From the get-go, everyone I communicated with showed a genuine interest in getting my measurements correct and the proper items for me. Better services and better products would be impossible!

Jeff L. New York, USA

I'm always happy to open the package to discover another new obi belt. The quality is still the best, delivery time still there, and most important the service is number one. Very dedicated to the client.
