⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yusuf T. from Austria
"My white belt has an awesome cotton quality. The stitchings/sewings, which are reinforced, are great and well made inside and around from the belt itself. Furthermore in my opinion handmade goods should stand out a little bit from the no love industrial created, sterile goods. Chokesports.com service and delivery is outstanding. Period."
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Daniel H. from USA
"I've worn belts from a few different companies and the embroidery from Isami has been the tightest and most crisp. The customer service was also excellent as they worked with me to make the exact belt I wanted."
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Thiago C. from Brazil
"My 3 and 5 year old boys have just started practicing Jiujitsu and I wanted them to have belts with their names on. Ordering was simple and the belts were an instant hit at home. I feel like they are even more motivated to train and they love showing the belts around. Well done ChokeSports!"

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".
SHIPPING & RETURNS
⏲️ It takes 20 work days to custom make your new belt, but we also offer a rushed service (10 work days) for urgent orders. The whole process is handmade and we always have many orders waiting in line. We will send you a completion estimate a few days after the order is placed so you know when it will ship.
✅ Because these belts are made to order and unique, they cannot be returned or exchanged. So please make sure to double check all the details before completing your order. Once we start working on the belt, no changes will be accepted. All sales are final.
🤩 We guarantee the wait is very much worth it: we'll custom make the belt exactly the way you want it!
🧼 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.
