Ki belt vs. Koral belt – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

After hard work and time I have achieved blue belt.  I was awarded a Ki belt at the test.  It was a little small for me.  It gave me the look of Baby Huey when I had it on.  It was thin and flimsy.  I decide there had to be something better.  I had just bought my first real Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Kimono (Koral MKM Urban Camo Kimono) and decided that I should get a belt from Koral (click to see).  I was a little skeptical about the Koral belts at first. Koral Color Belts As you can see in the picture it doesn’t give much detail.  Koral belts were going for roughly $20 plus shipping where as the Ki sold for $5 plus shipping.  I didn’t want to have another flimsy belt with a know brand name on it.  Koral is made in Brazil and Ki is made in China.  I decided to take a chance and get a blue Koral but now how to pick the right size?  There was no belt size chart to help me.  I finally decided to go with the same size as my kimono or gi.  In short order my belt arrived in the mail.  I quickly took it out and compared it to my Ki and old HSU white belt.  My new Koral was longer then my Ki, to my relief, but shorter then my old HSU white belt.  I tried it on with my gi and it looked good.  The quality of the belt is much better too.  It is thicker and has the black ends for strips.  I guess you get what you pay for.  I recommend the Koral belt over Ki.
