Birthday Black Belt to Leo Vieira

A while ago our team was recruited for a very special mission: to custom make a birthday black belt for a true Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu legend. We selected our best selling F-450 soft core black belt to create this Isami BJJ Black Belt Premium. As you can see, there are five stitched degrees and the master's name in golden Japanese letters... Master Leonardo Vieira, aka Leozinho, is the founder and head instructor of the powerhouse Checkmat Team which has some of the top names in competitive BB such as Marcus Buchecha, Jackson Souza, Lucas Leite among many others.

Hideo Tokoro at Quintet Grappling

Our RVDDW sponsored fighter Hideo Tokoro and his team are getting ready to perform at the upcoming Quintet Grappling event which will be streamed on UFC Fight Pass. For those of you who never got to see his jaw dropping armbar submission at the first Quintet Grappling event (it's become an instant classic!), here it is again. I wonder what he has up his sleeve this time around. Go Tokoro!

Isami Silk Black Belt for Karate and BJJ

We made this belt for a Karate photo shoot many years ago. It's an Isami F-1000 silk black belt with golden dan stripes embroidered on one end. This belt is handmade in Japan and has a special shine and texture unlike generic cotton belts. I liked it so much that I decided to keep it. So we added the traditional BJJ rank bar sleeve to hide the golden degrees. Now the gold is starting to show due to natural wear and tear after all these years. The silk fabric is not as strong as cotton, but it ages beautifully like...

Mas Oyama's favorite Karategi: Isami K-500

Our parent company Isami has a very long and deep history with Kyokushin Karate in Japan. Sosai Masutatsu Oyama, founder of the Kyokushin Karate style, was an acquaintance of Mr. Shigeyuki Iso, Isami's president.
