The belt is perfect in every detail! I congratulate all the Kataaro′s staff for her professionalism. Thanks again, see you next time!

I've been training for 16 years and never had a belt that was everything I wanted -- until now. This one is IT. I had an old belt with kanji that I wanted replicated exactly. All I had to do was upload a photo with my order, and Kataaro got it picture-perfect. I've had multiple embroidered belts, and the quality of this embroidery is the best I've ever seen. I chose the soft core, and it tied perfectly right out of the box -- not too soft, but with a suppleness that's just right. The sizing calculator helped me choose the perfect size, as well. They even coil the belt in the box so that it arrives with no creases. Every detail is spot-on, and the price is beyond reasonable for what you're getting. I would recommend this company in a heartbeat.

I just received my black belt yesterday and I want to say it is perfect. I want to thank all of you for making the belt to my specs. The workmanship is very well done and the belt fits perfectly. I will recommend your co. to my sensei and students. In closing I would just like to add that this has been a very positive experience for me. Thank you, Mr. Frank Sisti

Congratulations to Kataaro on crafting an excellent black belt, and one that I expect any serious martial artist would be exceptionally pleased to own and wear. For full review, with photos, see blog post by Yean Wei Ong.

OUTSTANDING QUALITY! I could not be happier with this belt. The feel right out of the box was perfect. The custom embroidery was something I was very apprehensive about, but these guys nailed it (they made the process really easy too). I'll be spreading the word that KATAARO is the company to order from.

Received my embroidered belt on time and am really impressed with the look and quality. It's a great looking belt and commemorates my rank with the first karate organization in the U.S. The Kataaro staff were very helpful in explaining some of the nuances in translating to Japanese. I will continue to come back to Kataaro for future needs - nice people.

I just received my 3rd degree senior instructor promotion from my SGM. It being a special rank, I decided to order a custom belt from Kataaro for the promotion. It was a great decision. It is the finest crafted belt I have ever owned. The materials, construction, and attention to detail are impeccable. Communication and customer service are second to none. Jodi and Gage were very responsive, answered all my questions, and walked me through the order process for my custom belt with a custom embroidered design. They have earned a customer for life. All my future belts and those of my students will be Kataaro belts.

Just bought my Katarro Deluxe Black Belt, and its absolutely awesome, one of the best belts I've ever had. I currently wear a Mooto Do Black Belt, it's a very nice high quality belt, but has always been very thick and bulky, would get even heavier from sweat when training, and took long while to break in. I've owned many belts with different widths and lengths ranging from cheap ones made of pollyester/cotton with heat treated unfinished ends to ones with sewn finished ends but none of them compare to this Katarro belt. It is very soft 100% brushed cotton, black soft core, 1.75 inch width is nice to keep the knot tied well and not too wide which makes it more comfortable to train in. Awesome detail handmade and awesome customer service, the belt brand logo is also small and discreet which is nice since some belts have huge branding logos that just take up too much belt real estate. I would recommend this belt to any martial artist who has been training a long time and wants something to reflect that without being too loud. Sleek but simple. Awesome work Katarro might get one for my brother if he so desires. Will definitely buy a another one for myself in the future if I need a new belt.

Got my custom made black belt and I couldn't be more pleased! Such a quality product and the embroidery is the best I've seen on any belt in 20+years of study. Tons of options to make it just the way you want. I am a returning customer and would not shop anywhere else for a black belt as there is no equal. After years of hard work to reach such an achievement as obtaining your black belt, this is the belt that one should wear with pride and honor to signify that achievement. Well done Kataaro for making such an amazing product to represent such a momentous milestone in any martial artist's journey!

I just received my Red Master Belt with nine yellow stripes with my style name in English once again Kataaro exceeded their quality and service. This is my second belt from Kataaro in the past 3 years. I am extremely satisfied and I will definitely recommend and will order our future belts from Kataaro. Thank you. Respectfully, Ernesto Arellano GM 2nd Gen. Arellano Kenpo Kobudo & Hakutsuru

I just received my new belt for being promoted to 8th Dan and it is fantastic. This is the sixth belt I've purchased from you and I've never been disappointed. Top quality materials and top quality craftsmanship and all from an American company. I know I will order many more.

by on July 12, 2018

Superior quality to previous belt I have owned, you just can’t beat hand made American items. I can not wait to get my belt broke in. I was expecting it to be a lil thicker because that’s how I like my belts but I am still highly satisfied with the feel and look will definitely buy another one

by on July 9, 2018

I've purchased almost a dozen of Katarro belts for my students. These belts are beautifully hand crafted and made to last. My students have worked so hard to earn their Black belt they deserve a world class belt. Kataaro is not only a world class customer friendly company, they handcraft the finest belt in the industry.

I just received my belt last week. Everything was perfect. Thank you to Gage and the Kataaro team for making my belt. It arrived on the 30th day of my order. I chose a cotton, 1.75in, stiff core, front embroidery for my name and club, and a thru embroidery for a small logo at the end of the belt. Kataaro was able to embroider both Chinese and Japanese on the belt. Having Chinese on the belt was important to me, and I was very glad that Kataaro was able to embroider the characters. My belt came in at 2 inches longer (117, rather than 115), which was no big deal. I am glad that Kataaro tells you your exact belt length. Again, customer service was amazing and I am glad that the customer has control and a say in how the belt is embroidered. Other companies appear that they embroider without your review, and it gets sent off (fingers crossed) that it comes back the way you think it should look. I like that Kataaro sends you a sample "proof" of what your belt will look like before it is created and embroidered for production.

Just received my new belt from Kataaro. This is the fifth belt that I have ordered, and as always it was just what I wanted. I recommend Kataaro belts to all of my martial arts friends.

by on August 19, 2015

My only regret about this belt is I didn't get one when I was promoted! I have loved and cherished my Brushed Cotton Black Belt ever since I received it back in 2010. It has lasted better than any belt I've ever worn or seen worn by others. The breaking down of the belt shows the time spent working out in it without compromising the integrity of the belt. A must for ANY Black Belt wearer!

by on May 7, 2015

Just received my belt yesterday. It is very high quality and I'm very pleased with the result. Kataaro embroiders high-quality belts. This is my second belt from Kataaro. Much thanks. RDC

I just received the embroidered black belt I ordered as a gift to a student, and I have to say that both the belt itself and the service rendered has surpassed my every expectation. The service was quick in coming, and helpful and precise in form. The belt is stunning. I've seen no belt here in Norway, ever, to rival it. The embroidery, as well, is unsurpassed. I cannot wait to present it to the recipient, and I will without a doubt shop with Kataaro from now on (and recommend others to do the same). Many thanks!

by on October 7, 2013

As always...your craftsmanship is OUTSTANDING! I've ordered many belts from you all, and each time I'm pleasantly surprised when I feel the belt in my hands. I refer all serious practitioners to you, and have bought customized belts for Masters in my school. Keep up the great work, and as I've said have a customer for life!

I just received my personalized black belt from Kataaro. If have been searching the internet for a black belt I could embroider, but ended up paying $30 for a "deluxe" belt that I did not feel was of standard to embroider but would have paid more to return so I had to keep it. Through a recommendation I found Kataaro. Went out on a limb and ordered it already embroidered and was not disappointed. The black belt is perfect. NOT ONE IMPERFECTION. The belt was the perfect length, width, thickness, weight, and it hung naturally the first time. The embroidery was second to none. I tried it on with my street clothes and still did not want to take it off. Even more then that the Kataaro team kept me informed of the process and shipping. I paid more for quick production and they informed me that it would be done and shipped by April 29, 2013 and it was delivered to my house on April 26th, which was less then a full week from my order. I could not ask for any more. I would highly recommend Kataaro belts for any serious martial artist that wants a true piece of art. Thank you Kataaro. You have a customer for life.

My new embroidered Hapkido Dan belt arrived a couple weeks ago, and I must say it is yet another exquisite example of the high art of Kataaro. Materials and workmanship are simply superb. --DEC (Ames, IA)

by on November 7, 2012

The workmanship is obviously of the OCD variety, and I loved the first belt I received so much, I immediately ordered two others for fellow practitioners. You have a customer for the life of my practice and I will most certainly pass on your info to others who REQUIRE a top quality belt to represent more than just a piece of cloth to hold up their pants!

I received my gorgeous embroidered black belt today, and I am totally impressed. The tremendous trouble Tom and Pam went to, to ensure that it gets delivered safely to South Africa was also commendable. I would highly recommned Kataaro and will definitely do business with them again. Dr. Jeanette Lotter (Johannesburg)

I just received the embroidered 1st Dan black belt in the mail. Wow! The quality and craftsmanship alone make it but the embroidery makes it extra special. I'm more than satisfied. I will definitely be wearing this to class tonight rather than my old XXXXX belt. --Brandon Mitchell

by on August 17, 2012

Today I received my belt! It's fantastic! Thank you - lovely workmanship on the stitching. My club usually chooses gold thread but I think the red looks more striking. I'm very pleased with my purchase - the cotton is beautiful. When I wore it at training tonight, it felt like it has been worn by me already. So many thanks. I may well order another from you! --Jules Sykes

I have received my Kataaro belts and still admire the beauty of both of them! Beautifully articulate and amazing quality. Shihan Agnew. Northern Colorado Ninpo

by on October 12, 2011

Outstanding quality. I read the reviews prior to purchasing and once I received my first Kataaro belt I was amazed by the embroidered script and art of the belt. I ordered this belt, Black Belt, as the belt I would wear for the duration of my practice as a Black Belt. When I gave my instructor the belt to hold until I completed my Black Belt testing, he was shocked by the level of craftsmanship and now all Black Belts will be receiving Kataaro Black Belts.

by on July 29, 2011

My custom black belt arrived on Monday. It's amazing! The embroideried script is clean and crisp. I constently receive commplements from club mates and friends on it. Even my sensei was impressed. Thank you Kataaro! Thomas Owens, Bushido Judo Club, Wenatchee, WA.

I received my Kataaro belt and it's just breathtaking!!! I appreciate the patience on the embroidery requirements and admire the professional service. Definitively this is the place to get the senior belts of our system... Sensei A. Sandoval Bushikan Jujitsu Lake Chapala Mexico

by on February 23, 2011

I had my belt done by Kataaro and it came out fantastic. All the stitching was above board and clean. The embroidered logo was not only neat it was legible. I will from this day forward do all my ordering through Kataaro. The quality and craftsmanship are excellent. I had the 2 inch soft black belt done with gold lettering. I receive compliments about the belt all the time. Thank You Kataaro... Chris Shabazz, Sensei Sho Shin Karate Rochester, NY

Purchased a 2 inch wide stiff black belt and had my instructor and fellow students asking questions. You could tow a car with this thing! Just love to wear it! Thanks, Kataaro!

by on July 7, 2010

Kataaro Belts are world class, second to none with their superb craftsmanship. I have ordered custom belts from other reputable manufacturers and will now remain a loyal customer to Kataaro due to their excellence coupled with their superb personal service and communication.
