Thread: How high, or low, do you wear your BJJ belt?

  1. #1

    Default How high, or low, do you wear your BJJ belt?

    Ha, I wrote a non-serious piece on my blog about how dorky I look because I wear my belt quite high and all the cool black belts seemed to wear theirs quite low.

    It inspired me to notch up a little belt height coolness chart - just for fun (sorry if it's a bit big):



    So how do you wear your belt?

    belts are only there to hold your trousers up.

    They don't actually hold your trousers up on a GI.

    If only I had a physique that meant I could low sling the belt

    (...of course it's not so much about looking cool as being able to whip your gi out quickly to wrap someone up with, therefore: fat hips = even more hinderance!)

    Mauricio "white Bear" Gomes told me 11 years ago the BJJ belt should be hung round the hips... who am I to argue!!

    Aha, the first clue as the why low slung belts rule...for quick and easy access to gi lapel skirts...and if Mauricio says it's cool, then it's cool.
