What size judo belt do you need? 

Looking for a new judo belt, but you have no clue about the size? There are two ways to calculate the size you need. It is possible to apply these methods separately, but Aikipro recommends you combine the two be sure about what size you need. The first way is the most simple one:

Formula 1: Length in centimetres + 100 centimetres.

e.g. → You are 176 centimetres tall. In that case you need to add 100 centimetres to your current length, which makes a total of 276 centimetres. We advise you to round the number up, which would give you a belt of 280 centimetres.

Formula 2: Hipsize x 2 + 80/90 centimetres.

e.g. → Your hipsize is 80 centimetres, which would mean you need a size 260 judo belt (80 centimetres x 2 = 160 centimetres + 80/90 centimetres = 250 centimetres). We advise you to round the number for the size up, so that would mean you’d need a size 260 judo belt.

In the two examples above you can see that your length doesn’t always correspond with your belt size. Combine both formulas to make sure you order the right size judo belt.

Difference in judo belts

  • Amount of stitches: A belt with more stitches will last longer. The belt is sturdier and the knot will stay in place longer.
  • Production quality: A standard judo belt is less well produced than a belt that’s made by a traditional (Japanese) manufacturer. Partially handmade belts will inevitably give you better quality than standard factory work.

Prices of judo belts

For beginners and the youth standard judo belts are sufficient. You can get those starting from just € 10,-. For judokas who achieve or have achieved a black belt it is recommended to consider going for a more premium judo belt. Seido for example has these premium belts.
