  • A plain belt takes approximately 2-3 weeks to custom make, whereas an embroidered belt will take about 3-4 weeks to prepare.
  • The whole process is handmade and we always have many orders waiting in line.
  • But don't worry, we will send you a completion estimate a few days after the order is placed and we guarantee the wait is very much worth it.
  • We will custom make the belt you've always dreamed of.


  • Because these belts are made to order and unique, they cannot be returned or exchanged.

  • Three embroidery sizes available: 1.5cm (for writing in two lines), 2.5cm (our standard size) and 3.5cm (looks good on 45mm and 47mm wide belts).
  • We recommend you calculate beforehand how long the embroidery will be on your belt. So you can ensure the embroidery does not end up inside the knot when the belt is tied.

  • For foreign name translations, traditionally we use Katakana letters, which reproduce the sounds.
  • If you request [First Name] + [Last Name], there will be a dot in between the two names. This dot also counts as a character.

What Customers Are Saying About Chokesports

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 no 1. I had communication with Lisa Andersen. She wanted to be sure that my order was the right one for my new Shodan young girl. Very dedicated to the client. Simply the best.

Ghislain F. Quebec, Canada

I've always had my eye on RVDDW and Isami brand gear but wasn't sure about how to order in the US. ChokeSports made the process extremely easy and the shipping was amazingly fast even including the time allotted for custom patchwork. Extreme recommend to anyone on the fence. Much respect always to ChokeSports.

Brandon M. Tennessee, USA

Best gi from best vendor. This is my third Isami Gi purchase from ChokeSports. I use them for Judo and BJJ. They fit the best, and they feel the best. Super fast shipping too. Rest assured I will order my fourth Isami Gi from ChokeSports in the future.

Dennis K. Texas, USA

I want to congratulate the whole company, not only for the excellent work with the black belt I bought, but mainly for the support I had from the first steps of ordering. Connor's help was valuable through the chat line, up to the emails informing me of every detail. My colleagues and I will recommend your company. Thank you!
