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.

Just received our belts and they are really nice! Workmanship, embroidery, material and overall attention to detail are all really impressive. Delivery was a little bit faster than expected and communication of the process was really good.
Appreciated and highly recommended.

Incredibly well made
Posted by Jacob Willetts on 30th Sep 2019
Received my belt today exactly 5 weeks after I ordered it. The belt is absolutely superb and the quality is unreal, I was particularly worried about there being too much embroidery on the belt that it might run into the knot, however Im really glad to see that it doesnt. I would recommend though that if you do order the extra wide belt I would recommend order two sizes bigger than what you normally have. I think that knowing the size differences, I would have ordered one size bigger than what I ordered as I prefer longer belts but it does fit well and its so well crafted with beautiful embroidery.
Thanks to TokaidoJapan for their superb customer experience and unbeatable craftsmanship.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you.
Good quality belt and very nice embroidery

The material and workmanship of the belt is very good and the embroidery is precise. Just take note that the belt will shrink by approximately 2% after first wash.
TOKAIDO note... Thank you for the review and we recommend being very careful if you wash it.
Impressive Champion BLC 覇者 Black Belt
Posted by Unknown on 12th Aug 2019
I practice karate for 36 years. It is relatively short period of time in comparison to the history of martial arts, particularly karate. I am honoured to write briefly about the Champion BLC 覇者 Black Belt in response to the request by email from the Tokaido (https://www.tokaidojapan.com/).
The order for the belt with embroidery was placed in June 19, 2019. The product has been received in July 29, 2019. The belt looks strong and durable. Embroidery is nice and impressive.
The long tradition of karate and Japanese craftsmanship seems to be perfectly reflected by the quality of the received belt which met my expectations. I recommend the product without any reservation.
TOKAIDO note... Thank you for the comprehensive review.
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.
