Generally speaking, traditional Chinese martial arts
schools don’t use the color belting system (i.e.
Differentiating the levels by wearing different color
belts) like other martial arts systems do.
Originally, sash is just of one accessory of Chinese
traditional dressing, it could work as a belt and/or
as wallet to keep important items attached to body etc.
In Chinese Martial art, there are several major reasons
that participants should wear sash. Firstly , providing
support to protect lower back so to keep it straight,
it is very essential especially for those styles that
require intensive body movements, such as jumping kicking
and/or delivering intensive force for instance.
Secondly, to keep clothes tidy and tighten during the
moves, one of the general rules of fighting preparation
in Chinese martial arts is called “three tightness”
Which means to tighten 1. sash, 2. sleeve and 3, shoes.
Last but not least, sash can also become very useful
weapon and tool as an backup rope or a wrapper etc.
Some traditional Chinese martial schools do have forms
specially practice how to use sash to lock, trap and
tide enemies, such as “’Kun Xian Suo” (Rope for truss immortal up) in northern Shaolin system for instance.
In this sense, the sash should have reasonable long
length and strength,
Our quality sashes are made of 9 feet triple layers
satin with 10 CM width to provide the best support to
martial arts patricians’ lower back with appropriate
weight for avoiding possible trapping during the moves.
The color range of enlightenment sash is according
to traditional Chinese five elements’ colors:
Metal (white), wood (green), water (black), fire (red),
For the best comfort and looking, we recommend matching
