Product Description

The Grand Master BLH is our absolute finest. The Grand Master is made of a 100% thick canvas core, covered with an outer layer of special high grade silk. 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. The Grand Master is designed to last and wear down slowly giving it a time honored feel.

Custom Embroidery 

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 sideThis 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 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.

Production Time 

As with all kuruoobi that are made in Japan by Tokaido Japan, each uniform is made as it is ordered. This way we can ensure that you receive the best belt possible. Currently un-embroidered belts require 3 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.

  2. The realization of a dream

    Posted by Alex on 3rd Feb 2023

    Ever since I was a kid, I've wanted a Tokaido belt.
    For me it was the realization of a dream.
    The belt is simply beautiful, very well finished.
    It took a long time to arrive, as it had to go around the world.

    TOKAIDO note: We are happy we could help you realize your dream.

  3. Amazing

    Posted by Luis Garay on 17th Dec 2022

    Just received my first Tokaido belt and I must say that it is really an amazing piece. It has a very beautiful shiny finish that makes it look above any cotton belt. It is definitely worth the investment and I would recommend it to anyone. The shipment got here very quickly and my inquiries were answered in a couple of hours.

    TOKAIDO note: We are happy to receive your positive review on both our craftsmanship and customer service. Enjoy.

    Tokaido always provides me with their great and high quality products, and the last order was two grand master belts with embroidery. Great job. Thank you.

  7. Great service & quality

    Posted by K Pollard on 9th Mar 2022

    Ordered two of these belts now for both of my children. Made a mistake on the size, but this was swiftly rectified via email.
    Belts are of a superior quality - ordered the extra width Grandmaster both times.
    Will be definitely ordering one for myself :)

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review and we look forward to serving you for your belt soon.

  8. Tokaido Silk Black Belt (GRAND MASTER BLH)

    Posted by Kaizen Karate Club (UK) on 27th Jan 2022

    The quality of these belts are absolutely outstanding. I ordered 3 belts which were delivered on time. Tokaido kept me informed at each stage of the manufacturing to the delivery date. I have 3 very happy students who are proud to wear their Tokaido Silk Black Belt.
    Another belt ordered two weeks ago.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review and we are happy that you are satisfied.

  9. Beautiful craftsmanship.

    Posted by Scott Elsdon on 26th Jan 2022

    I had been saving for this, something I wanted to aspire to since my Sensei had a silk decades ago. I wasn't disappointed. The weight and feel is great. I went for the slightly wider belt and was impressed. The stitching of the embroidery is perfection. The communication was great also. Thank you.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your comprehensive review and we are happy that you are satisfied.

  10. Beautiful Obi!

    Posted by Mark on 20th Jan 2022

    My belt is fantastic! I received it via courier early and took it out to inspect. The embroidery looks absolutely top notch. The belt has a luxurious feel to it.

    I am a first time buyer but my Father bought his obi from Tokaido.

    I purchased this obi in preparation for my black belt grading and is on my vision board awaiting me earning my Shodan. I look forward to the day I can wear my first black belt from a fantastic supplier of karate gear!

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you and enjoy your test and wearing your new belt.
