Expert BLS 専門家 Satin Black Belt
Choose Your Options
The Expert 専門家 (Senmonka) is made with a 100% thick canvas core and covered with an outer layer of special high grade satin. It has been described as the "look of silk at the cost of satin". 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. It is designed to last and wear down gradually giving it the desired time honored look.
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.

I recently received my new Obi from Tokaido Japan. I must say the Satin finish on the Belt is amazing and the Custom Embroidery is stunning. I've been ordering Belts and Gis from Tokaido Japan since mid 1970 and their Quality and Service is matched by no one. I just want to say Thank You Tokaido Japan for such Quality Merchandise throughout the years!
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your nice review and we appreciate your being one of our long term customers. We look forward to serving you well into the future.
tokaido is the best....

I bought the satin black belt with two embroidery, my name and S.K.I.F. (the label also SKIF), I choose the Gold color embroidery, and I just have to say... It's impressive, the care with the finish... in a word, perfect. Thank you Tokaido to overcome my expectation.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for such a positive review. We look forward to serving you again.

J'adore ma nouvelle ceinture! Plus épaisse, elle va durer des années et la finition satiné lui donne un look incroyable.
