2 Belts???

    Wed, 2006-10-25 21:41 — Gerald Rhoades

    Ive seen in some of the video clips that some guys wear say their blue belt or purple, or brown, etc. and besides that they also wear a second one..i think usualy its yellow alternating with green...whats up with that??

    No. It's not a new custom. They've long done that in Judo competions and considering how widely Judo is practiced in Brazil and amongst BJJ players that is where they likely adopted it.

    I would much rather just use the ankle bracelet style myself. Another question
    though: If you are both the same level belt wise, why not just take yours off for the match and wear the representative country belt that you are, U.S.,Brazil, Japan etc.? Is this seen as disrespectful to your school, master or yourself even I guess?

    perhaps ninja hoods are the way to go!! and when someone is tapped out, they can cover thier escape with smoke bombs!!!

    I feel the same way, but I think it comes from superstition than it really having a significant effect on my performance.

    2 belts

    hello,

    thanks to gumby for the info. just wondering, has the use of two belts always been practiced? is it a new custom?

    thanks.

    ive seen places use wrestling ankle things and also red cloth tucked around the backside of your belt ibelieve those are nicer:D

    I like the arm bands and the wrist bands better but at the tournament back in the spring, they used the red belts over the belt color you were.

    yeah it seems to me that 2 belts might be a little bothersome...plus sometimes the belts end up coming off anyway...i think the ankle thing sounds better....
