⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Phil from USA
"Coming up in the gym all the upper belts had Isami belts and gis. I waited until brown to purchase mine and it’s perfect. Amazing quality, beautifully crafted and it showed up early. I'm not one for name brands but Isami is Isami."
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Pedro from UK
"I had been eyeing some Isami gear for a few years now. ChokeSports helped me get what I wanted. This is currently my favourite belt and being made in Japan, it is an absolute bargain at this price! Definitely recommended. No doubt I will be back for more."
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Daniel from USA
"I have worn Isami belts at every rank in my Jiu Jitsu journey. As the belts are worn and become broken in, the true quality of the belt comes out. To me this is superior quality. It takes years of training for the belt to achieve this level. It’s something to aspire to and shows the dedication to the art and dedication of the Isami product."

BELT FIRMNESS & EMBROIDERY
➡️ STIFF BELTS are heavier and feel sturdy around your waist, taking longer to "break" than a soft belt. These belts feature "integrated embroidery": we embroider the fabric first and then we make the belt. There will be no trail on the reverse side, but the belt stitch lines will be over the embroidery.
➡️ SOFT BELTS are lightweight and have a "broken-in" feel. We add custom embroideries to the finished belt. The embroidery will be over the belt stitch lines but the reverse side will show a trail. This is what we call "non-integrated embroidery".
📏 BELT WIDTH: 42mm, 45mm, 50mm
Now you can choose how wide your Isami Brown Belt should be. The standard belt width is 42mm (1.65in) but we also make wider variations that are 45mm (1.80in) and 50mm (2.00in). They are especially popular with bigger fighters/instructors who need a belt that will match their large frame.

🧼 BELT WASHING INSTRUCTIONS
In Japan it is uncommon to wash the obi martial arts belt. However many of our international customers like to wash their belts. We recommend hand washing (with hand soap) and hang drying in the shade. Please note that regular washing will accelerate the belt's aging process and might cause it to shrink further than estimated. It will still be functional and last for many years though.
