Seriously though, keep your belt white as possible. When some legend (in his own mind) offers to tutor you at a seminar, well, the look on their face when you do an eye-popping nikkyo is absolutely priceless.
It is gradually turning white over the years with wear and tear. Still quite black though!

Osu!

I like my belt clean and washed in pretty floral scented detergent so I smell clean and good while I take ukemi.
No no no... just ignore me, that was me no not me, I mean it was me but not me coz' that was me being possessed by an aikifruit sprite. Make sense?

Well I train Yoshinkan an to the extreme - as in muscle pain. I have never left my belt smelly though, and that is with 3 weeks intensive training in Malaysia 3 and a half years ago under Master Thamby Rajah and Sensei Joe Thambu! If your belt was giong to get smelly, that was the time!

Maybe you are just a smelly, sweaty mess!!!!!!

On the other hand, it may just be that you didn't smell yourself and others did. I am not going to say "no insult intended" because this will be insulting to some, but, you white guys do stink to us non-whites, especially when you sweat. Yes, I know, we stink to you guys too. He he he, especially when I fart.

Re: Belt Washing and Embroidery

Whether you wash your belt or not, just be sure to let it dry properly after you practice! I saw a student wearing a moldy white belt the other day. Yuck!
