    I wash Gi and belt before every class. yeah, looking at an old dirty belt might be a nice sight for some people, but come on, why would you not wash your belt? It's a piece of cloth, just like the gi, that gets sweaty and dirty.

    A belt is supposed to accumulate dirt untill it becomes black.
    How do you want to become a black belt if you KEEP WASHING IT??


    can't believe nobody mentioned this in this thread

    I'm with Yrkoon9 on this one. I wash my belt when it get's a bit stinky. Sometimes I forget to take it my wet-gi out of my training bag so the belt can get smelly.

    I wash my belt for practical reasons.

    First, I don't want it to smell. Second, I don't want it to rot prematurely or harbor bacteria. Microorganisms spread rapidly in a humid environment like the Philippines has. I don't want to give bacteria and/or fungi an additional breeding ground.

    I just realized that I've never washed my belt in over a year of BJJ. It just never crossed my mind. Perhaps I should start?
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    "Step away," I hissed.
