2020 Oni Premium Jiu-Jitsu Belts
The character for Oni, 鬼 in its oldest Chinese inception refers to an ancestral spirit. Many cultures across the globe have timeless tales of demons inhabiting objects and places, fed by a person's love, passion and anger.
We envisioned our premium Jiu-Jitsu belt like a sacred object, a totem,inhabited by the ancestral Oni of the martial arts way, forever hungry, and fed by the athlete's obsession with training, and ones pursuit of perfection.
For these reasons we have worked tirelessly on our new Oni belt, pushing the boundaries of what a BJJ belt is, rejecting all previous conceptions in order to create something never been seen before in the BJJ community.
To start we have chosen a new special "Caterpillar" weave to give the belt not only a vintage worn out look, but also, due to it's rope like quality, keep it firmly in place once tied.
In order to add to the overall premium quality of the belts we have used gold metallic thread on all black belts, and silver metallic thread on all belt colors.
The rank bar is made of premium silk satin material, woven purposely at different angles to create a smooth, but visible traditional Edo period style woven pattern, symbolizing the everlasting flow of this martial art.
An inch was added on both ends of the belt, so that it will look powerful once tied around the waist, and not look flimsy and small like bow-tie as other brands' belt do after a few months of use.
We made the size label of the belt a tear-away one, so if you prefer a cleaner look, you can easily remove it without damaging the belt etc.
And if all these details weren't enough, we have included not one, but two specially designed Half Sumo elastic velcro ties ( See photos below) which can be used to keep the belt neatly folded when stored in your bag, but most importantly wrapped around the knot while training, it will keep it tied around your waist even during the hardest and most intense sparring. Worm guard players beware ;)
