This week as I prepared for a featherweight weigh-in, ns weighed every my Gi's on mine kitchen range to compare. There's 400 grams (9/10ths that a lb or 14oz), between the lightest and heaviest, no surprisingly. If I have one gi 400 grams lighter 보다 another, climate that's 400 grams less than I need to cut. Mix and match various brands (same colour), every good.

You are watching: How much does a belt weigh

Then the struck me ns hadn't taken into consideration or weighed my BELT!

Damned point weights 250 grams alone <1/2 lb>. I grabbed an old crappy Blue belt I had actually laying about, the was only 150 grams. Lesson - every little bit count once cutting weight, so inspect your belt and also buy a crappy irradiate one for Competition work ;)

But a rapid question - has actually anyone ever before tried weighing in in ~ an IBJJF competition without her belt on? I'm walk to try this week and see if they notice or care.

Yes they will certainly care. In ~ Gi examine they even measure just how long the belt is indigenous the knot and look because that fraying. If you require that extra couple of ounces you one of two people didn't gain your reduced right or might think around staying up a weight course honestly.

No offense to you OP personally, yet I discover it type of sad that IBJJF has to have together obscure and certain regulations since some civilization are looking for anything that deserve to be a minor advantage.

and this is comes from a guy who to trust in the "if you ain't cheatin', girlfriend ain't tryin'."

Thanks for the conversation guys, in certain the males who pointed out that they DO inspect your belt. I made weight by a complete 1kg (2.2lbs). No by wearing an old blue belt or do the efforts to weigh in without a belt at all ;) Oh and I winner 2 golds in the old guy Master2 divisions...
