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.

This Kuro Obi is excellent, great quality, its a little stiff right now but with time, practice and some sweat it will be perfectly on its way to be a White Belt!

I received my black belt in less than 5 weeks. I’m impressed by the quality of embroidery and cotton. I simply love it! I definitely recommend Tokaido belts!

Beautifully finished in every way.
The embroidery looks so much sharper against the black cotton compared to silk and satin options.
Being the proud owner of all 3 I have to say the champion BLC is my favourite for looks, finesse and practicality.
The extra width option is a must just don’t forget to order a size up from your usual size.

I ordered the cotton belt in a larger size than I usually wear, as katakana characters for my name take up quite a bit of length on the belt and am very pleased with the workmanship. The characters for my name on one end and my club's kanji on the other end are very evenly matched, so that when the belt is worn, the top of the writing on each end is balanced as is the bottom edges of the belt. I had some very helpful communications from Tokaido after I placed my order and my belt arrived in Australia in the time frame I expected.

The belt is great quality and beautiful embroidery. It is stiff, but it is also flexible. The production time is worth the wait. The shipping is extremely fast.

End result is stunning.
