    Hi- I'm a 32 in waist size, and was wondering- would the A1 or A2 belt fit me better? I looked all over the net but couldn't find info on Koral belt lengths... Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    Depends if you want the belt to hang long or hang tight. Order accordingly and either one of those should look decent.

    Should get the same size belt as what you wear for your Gi...if you wear an A2 then get an A2 belt...A1 Gi, A1 belt.

    Yeah- I realized that with every other company, an a2 was too long. For whatever reason, I had it in my head that korals were shorter belts. Thanks- I almost placed my order

    A2 should be okay.

    Because of the variations in opinions, I ended up making a 30 minute drive to the koral fight store in lawdale. Ended up running into Lyoto Machida there, lol

    I'm having the same problem. anyone want to measure the length of an A1 and A2 belt in inches for me? One site sai the A1 is 100 inches but they were out of belts lol. J/w if they are all the same length. The belt I have now is like 91 inches and it looks like I'm wearing a bowtie. Its like a kids size or something lmao.

    I have an A1 Koral Belt and when I measured it, it was 104 inches. Mind you I have washed and hung dry my belt along with my Gi a few times.

    I wear a size 32/34 pant size, and I just got an A2 and I think it's great. Definitely not a huge hang down, but definitely not just a little of each end sticking through the knot head. I think it's perfect length. I just measured for you, and I had the A2 at about 109/110 inches.

    FYI, you'll love it. My buddies all use Gameness, and those things are so stiff that not only do they constantly untie, they never truly tie to begin with. I give one good tug on my Koral, and I'm set for class!

    My last belt was an A2, and I had a 32 inch waist at the time. It was perfect. Now, I am older, got promoted, and jumped to a3 to fit my more svelt 34 inch waist.

    This isn't true. I wear an A4 gi and an A3 belt. I just have a narrow waist for a big guy. I weigh 225 and can wear shorts as low as 36. I need the extra room for my fat thighs, long arms and 46" chest, though.

    thanks a bunch for the advice and measurement and the tips on the gameness belt. I was actually about to buy a gameness belt but I'll look around.

    Ive wanted a new belt since getting promoted to blue (my professor belt are kinda cheap but hey its free). anyway I was comtemplating getting a War belt but it seem only bfw1.com have them and they are kinda expensive(all their belt are for some reason). I think this thread convinced me to order a koral but im not sure where to order since im from canada. The koralusa site seem to only ship to usa.
