Champion Shotokan Tiger Black Belt
Choose Your Options
The Champion 覇者 (Hasha) Shotokan Tiger Black Belt is TOKAIDO's most popular Special (Yohachi) black belt beautifully embroidered with the Shotokan Tiger directly on the 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. We will embroider the Shotokan Tiger in the color of your choice on whichever end you prefer.
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.

shorter than advertised

The quality of the obi is excellent as usual. However, I ordered a size six 116" (295 cm) the obi is actually 113" (287 cm). I can make it work but it is shorter than I had hoped it would be
TOKAIDO note: Thank you positive review especially considering the length issue. We will be more careful in the future..

The Shotokan Tiger looks very beautiful on the belt, and the belt is as the other products I bought from TokaidoJapan perfectly made.
