I hear amazing things from Shureido, but I dont understand what the difference is between their belt sizes:
- regular weight cotton black belt
- medium weight cotton black belt
- deluxe heavyweight cotton black belt

Can anyone explain the difference between them and why Id get one over the other? Im looking for a belt that will (hopefully) be my last one.

Also, has anyone bought a black belt from Ki International, and can you share your experience with how it held up?

Thank you!

Many of our students get their black belts from Kataaro (including me). I got one of their soft 1.75" cotton black belts with metallic blue embroidery (style on one side, name in katakana on the other side). It turned out GREAT, and I'm very happy with it. I've also gotten compliments from a few of the other students at the dojo. They have a wide variety of embroidery options if you decide to go that way, or you can just do a plain black belt if that's what you want. (The pin is a style pin I got from my CI)
