Champion BLC 覇者 Black Belt
Choose Your Options
The Champion 覇者 (Hasha) is TOKAIDO's most popular Special (Yohachi) black belt. Made with a 100% thick canvas core and covered with an outer layer of special high grade cotton. Sewn with 11 rows of reinforced stitching for resilience and a beautiful finish. Available in standard and extra width. For EXTRA WIDTH belts choose one size longer so that the embroidery will not be lost in the knot when tied. Designed for strength and long durability.
Tokaido Japan provides the highest quality embroidery in Japanese or English. No company can surpass the level of embroidery perfected by Tokaido.
The secret in the manufacturing of our belts is that the parts are cut and embroidered separately before being assembled and sewn together. This is the reason why they are so strong, neat and beautifully finished. The embroidery will not show through on the reverse side. This is the hallmark of a true, Made in Japan - Tokaido Black Belt.
In TOKAIDO’s continuing commitment to quality and customer service we have decided to add 3 font options for our black belt embroidery. Below from left to right we are offering:
Left Choice 昇龍 translated as “Rising Dragon”. (Default font)
Middle Choice 太行書 translated as “Bold Cursive”.
Right Choice 龍神 translated as “Dragon God”.
Each kanji font has it’s own character with the Left Choice described as crisp and clear, the Middle Choice characterized as strong and bold, and the Right Choice as sophisticated and detailed. TOKAIDO is happy to provide this choice and we hope you will appreciate these new options.
Please note: the Left Choice 昇龍 “Rising Dragon” is the default font and will be used if neither of the other two are chosen.
You may choose to embroider your style name and/or your personal name. For Japanese text, please select from the pop up menus by clicking on the Kanji Style Names or the Names in Japanese Katakana below the field that you desire. If your Style or Name is not in the menu then use this Google Translate link https://translate.google.com/#en/ja/ to CREATE and then COPY and PASTE into the field(s) you desire. We will confirm that the translation is correct before production. If you prefer English/Roman letters, then type directly in the field(s) of your choice.
As with all black belts that are made in Japan by Tokaido Japan, each one is made as it is ordered. This way we can ensure that you receive the best kuroobi possible. Currently un-embroidered belts require 2 weeks and embroidered belts require 5 weeks.
If you have any considerations you would like us to consider please write in the "Notes" box to let us know. You can also upload a document or picture.

Very good quality belt, excellent customer serivce
Posted by Jim Bamford on 22nd Jun 2019
The club I train in has bought these belts for our new Dan grades for the past 5 years. The belts themselves are very good quality, excellent embroidery and they age very well. The customer service has been uniformly excellent, the single issue we had with an order in all this time was dealt with professionally, quickly and to our satisfaction. I have no hesitation in recommending the belts of the company.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your comprehensive review. We look forward to serving you well into the future.

I was so pleased with my first belt, so I ordered 2 more in different color embroidery. Thoroughly happy with the high quality material and precision stitching. The embroidery is vivid and sharp.
TOKAIDO thanks you for your review.

Beautiful job! The embroidery looks just like the pictures and the work quality is outstanding.
This was a USA customer order for 2 different belts. My Tokaido rep was extremely helpful in advice and assistance.
My only caution is that the sizes in belts run a little more than size smaller than suppliers I have dealt with in the USA, especially with lettering on the belt.
My sales rep was helpful with everything and I am a happy customer!
Tokaido Note: Thank you for your helpful, thoughtful review. We are happy to hear it.

This is high quality. It's also nice and slick. Length measure is accurate. For 1.8 in width belt take one size longer as mentioned. Mine is just perfect. Arigato.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review and advice.

Students are happy .
Tokaido note. Thank you for your review.
belt is of very good quality
Posted by Arthur Koscianski on 19th Sep 2018
My Tokaido belt is of very good quality. The embroidery is nice and you have the impression that someone wrote it with a brush not with a needle. The problem is the unsightly arrangement of embroidery with respect to the belt's ends, ie. on the side of the label it is placed higher than on the other. Of course, you can cut the end to the right height, but is that what it's all about?...
TOKAIDO Note: Thank you for your review and question. Generally, a belt made in Japan will have the embroidery in different placement on the ends due to number of kanji/katakana and the label placement. This is a common practice of all Japanese black belt makers and considered standard by customers in Japan. We do try and balance as much as is possible and can accommodate special requests to a certain degree.
