How to tie a judo belt for Kata?
The belt must not only be of proper length, but should not be ragged.
The usual randori style of tying is permissible, but a special style also exists and is considered better.
Hold the short tail end in your right hand.
Wrap the belt around you in normal fashion, but begin with it off-center.
After taking the belt around your body twice, bring the short tail end in front of you, holding it in your left hand.
Insert it under the main body of the belt, which is now around your body.
Work the belt bands together and tighten the belt to desired degree.
Then pass the tail end held in your left hand over the tail end in your right hand, and tie the usual square knot.
A little practice will permit you to make both tails hang evenly.
