Don't be fooled by fake Isami Kyokushin gear
Our parent company Isami Japan stopped producing and selling official Kyokushin Karate gear way back in December 2015. You can read all about it here. This shocking announcement caught the entire Kyokushin community off guard, after all we had been custom making our world famous Black Belts and Karategis to IKO and other organisations for decades.
Since then a very sad development has taken place: there are a handful of online shops selling counterfeit Isami Kyokushin gear and claiming it is the original Japanese stuff that ChokeSports is known for. Every so often we are contacted by people who have been ripped off by these sites. They purchase a gi or belt expecting Isami Japan quality and receive instead some cheap knockoff from Pakistan or India. The scammers will even copy our product labels and steal ChokeSports' photos.
Simply put, if you find any Isami Kyokushin merchandise for sale online, you can be sure it is a cheap knockoff. ChokeSports and Isami Japan have not produced nor sold ANY Kyokushin gear since December 2015. If you or someone you know have been ripped off by these scammers, please let the Kyokushin community know about it.
