    I wash mine very infrequently. Maybe once every couple of months.

    Just to put things in perspective. It gets dragged around those dirty mats and WILL begin to stink. Do us all a favor and put the supertition behind you and your health and hygiene around you.

    Wow, you managed to screw that up just fine. :eusa_clap :eusa_clap

    If people keep bleeding on me as much as they did this last week, I'll be a brown belt in no time.

    I don't actually wear a belt anymore, but when I did, I would wash it.

    As far as washing away your pride from getting it all dirty or whatever... the belt stains to be proud of would be blood stains, and those aren't going to come out. Any fool can roll in the dirt, but it takes some effort to get the belt bloody.

    Belt? Yes. Why wouldn't you? Honestly.

    Am a similar peeve, what's with some karate dans that go to all sorts of lengths to make their brand new black belts look hundreds of years old (dragging behind cars and suchlike)?

    It's the whole "your chi is in your belt!" bullshit. That's why suddenly, when your belt falls off or you are rolling no-gi, you are total ****. Because the belt can't give you power.

    I hardly believe that a small fabric like a belt gets to stink all that much .LLOL!I have 5 of them in my drawer and there is no noticeable smell.

    Besides I think there is some quaint feeling of recognition when I see my dirty belt.If I should quit all my martial arts training. Atleast ,I'll still have my belt showing the traces of my training.

    Gi = weekly
    Belt = bi weekly to monthly

    I do take measures to make sure that both do not stink/carry d3adl3y viruses.

    Yeah, me too. I don't usually sweat during stretching, but the calisthenics routine will get me going. Maybe I should stop drinking so much water . . .
