I've been asked by a few students, who by the nature of their build require a longer than standard belt.

The longest I usually see sold is between 360-400cm. Unfortunately these are short for some of my students even if they were a single wrapped.


As such, what business could you point me to that I could get one straight up or custom order? I don't mind paying in another currency other than my usual (Australian Dollar)

You must have some REALLY big students -- I'm 6'2" and weigh 300+ lbs, and I have no problem with a size 9 (~380cm) belt (double wrapped). I know that Eosin Panther does offer color belts up to size 14 (419cm). However, they are MUCH more expensive than your standard color belt...

With their consent; they are a similar height to you; but are close to 350 kg.

I'll Check out Eosin to see the costing.

Kataaro makes extra long belts but they come at a cost.
