Does the bjJ belt’s colorful band really go left?

Every now and then someone asks a question that may seem trivial but in reality it is a smart and correct, curious question.

When you put on your bjj belt, should the colored band be positioned to the right or left?

Those who know me know that doubts like this I never put them first in relation to technical questions but I understand that some also look for the “correct” aesthetic of the uniform and surely it is also right to remember and respect tradition.

The story that explains the correct location originates from the distant Japan of the Samurai.

The samurai had two swords they wore in their belt: Katana and Wakisahi.

The two swords inserted into the left-pointed band represented their samurai status, which is why in Jiu Jitsu the colored band of the JJ belt is brought with the degrees to the left to show people your level reached.

But now I also want to point out an imortating thing that calls into question the story you just heard!

Does the bjJ belt's colorful band really go left? Fighting Tips - Street Fight Mentality & Fight SportAre you right-handed or left-handed?

If you’re right it’s normal to have swords on your left and vice versa if you’re left-handed.

Now what I want to tell you is that at that time the sword was not an ornament but it was really a defensive weapon,so this means that if you are left-handed it is possible that you have to put the belt band to your right.

There’s no written coding!

The choice for you but since you do not carry the sword my advice is respect the tradition and put the colored band of the bjj citura on the left.

Ps. If you want to respect the tradition or rules of your school it is likely that the colored band of the bjj belt you have to put it to your left.

Now I have received some observations from those who follow the tradition literally but remember that it is information handed down and that beyond tradition there is an evolution even in form, we also exist today without disrespect to those who have traced the way in the past.

Stay Tuned!

Con una passione per la difesa personale e gli sport da combattimento, mi distinguo come praticante e fervente cultore e ricercatore sulle metodologie di allenamento e strategie di combattimento. La mia esperienza abbraccia un vasto panorama di discipline: dal dinamismo del Boxing alla precisione del Muay Thai, dalla tecnica del Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu all'energia del Grappling, dal Combat Submission Wrestling (CSW) all'intensità del Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Non solo insegno, ma vivo la filosofia di queste arti, affinando costantemente metodi e programmi di allenamento che trascendono il convenzionale. La mia essenza si riflette nell'autodifesa: Filipino Martial Arts (FMA), Dirty Boxing, Silat, l'efficacia del Jeet Kune Do & Kali, l'arte della scherma con coltelli e bastoni, e la tattica delle armi da fuoco. Incarno la filosofia "Street Fight Mentality", un approccio senza fronzoli, diretto e strategico, unito a un "State Of Love And Trust" che bilancia l'intensità con la serenità. Oltre al tatami, la mia curiosità e competenza si spingono verso orizzonti diversi: un blogger professionista con la penna sempre pronta, un bassista dal groove inconfondibile e un artigiano del coltello, dove ogni lama è un racconto di tradizione e innovazione. Questa sinfonia di abilità non solo definisce la mia identità professionale, ma dipinge il ritratto di un individuo che nella diversità trova la sua unica e inconfondibile voce e visione.
