Meijin Pro Karate Belt


“They (Meijin) made an embroidered belt for me about 10 years ago.
I generally wear it 6 days a week for a couple of hours and it still looks excellent.”

—Mark Wellansky

The Meijin cotton black belt is sewn over a cotton felt inner core with ten lines of  continuous stitching for stability and strength. This belt is an absolute classic and when we custom embroider these belts with the Class A imported German embroidery Madera thread that we use they become works of art.

According to the Kodokan Judo Academy in Tokyo, Jigoro Kano, (1860-1938). the founder of Judo started the use of colored belts for different grades or ability levels
Kano Sensei, in his youth, studied Kito-Ryu jujutsu. Later, by absorbing techniques from other schools such as Yoshin Ryu, he created Judo (柔道) as a physical activity for all people, from Yawara, the ancient samurai method of violently subduing an armed enemy.
When Kano was a jujutsu student, instructors wore strong jackets decorated with diagonal lines of stitching similar to a modern kendo jacket. The color and sometimes the degree of elaboration of the stitching would distinguish the instructor’s rank and experience.
Kano’s idea was to create an art that everyone could practice regardless of income, social status, or gender. Buying expensive new training jackets at every promotion was beyond most people, so he substituted a colored belt instead to denote the wearer’s ability.

The Meijin PRO Karate Belt.

The Meijin PRO 1.75 inch cotton belt is the result of  years of researching the best materials and methods in our quest to produce the perfect karate belt. A belt that was stable, long lasting and good looking. One that showed character and maturity after long, hard use. The result was the Meijin belt in the 1.75″ width with 10 lines of stitching.

This looks and feels like karate belts that cost more than twice as much, but do not perform as well in actual use. A belt that will serve you faithfully for many, many years. The Meijin PRO karate belt construction methods & materials are chosen to stabilize and enhance Japanese belt embroidery, something that our company is very famous for.

The unique look of a well-used, embroidered silk belt is particularly desirable! Especially when the characters are expertly translated and sewn.
