Cost of Belt

If you are testing for first dan from brown belt, you will also need to order your black belt. There are two brands that you can choose from.

The English ‘Blitz’ branded belt is cheaper but still excellent quality. The Japanese ‘Shureido’ branded belt is the most premium belt you can buy. It is simply a choice of what you prefer.

It is recommended that juniors go for the Blitz belt as they will grow and need a new belt as they get older.

Your name and style will be written on both sides of the belt you choose in Japanese gold text.
