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...

What Customers Are Saying About Chokesports

My overall experience has been awesome. The quality and the detail of the items are simply second to none. Plus the best customer service I have ever experienced. I can't thank you enough!

Steve T. Nevada, USA

Isami has been around forever and nothing beats the hand made quality. Black Belts are so hard to earn, and you wear them for so long, that you need to spend the extra dollars and wear a ChokeSports belt.

Kirkor B. Connecticut, USA

From the get-go, everyone I communicated with showed a genuine interest in getting my measurements correct and the proper items for me. Better services and better products would be impossible!

Jeff L. New York, USA

I'm always happy to open the package from ChokeSports. The quality is still the best, delivery time still there, and most important the service is number one. Very dedicated to the client.
