NO MORE ISAMI KYOKUSHIN GIS AND BELTS
Don't be fooled by cheap knockoffs. ChokeSports.com and our parent company Isami Japan officially stopped selling all Kyokushin Karate products in the end of 2015. This includes Kyokushin Gis, Belts and apparel.
⚠️ If you find any Isami Kyokushin Belts and Gis for sale today, you can be sure these are cheap counterfeits made in Pakistan or China. Be advised!
We often receive messages from angry Kyokushin Karateka who have been ripped off by sites in Europe. They purchased these allegedly "Isami Kyokushin" products and received very low quality gear produced in sweat shops. The scammers go as far as copying our original label, stealing pictures from our site and even registering their fake "Isami" brand in another country. It's disgusting and goes against the code of honor that real martial artist live by.
WHY ISAMI STOPPED MAKING KYOKUSHIN GEAR
This is related to trademark issues among the main Kyokushin organizations in Japan. Which in turn led our parent company Isami Japan to step out of the Kyokushin business. We know that this comes as a shock to our loyal Karate customers around the world, after all we had been closely connected to Kyokushin since the beginning.
👊 Sosai Mas Oyama was a personal friend of Isami's founder and he wore our gis and belts for decades in Japan.
WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT
Here at ChokeSports.com you can still purchase the authentic Karate Gis and Belts from Isami Japan and personalize them with beautiful embroideries in English and in Japanese - as long as there's no Kyokushin mention! Obviously you can also look for lesser quality Kyokushin goods elsewhere. Just make sure not to fall for any "Isami Kyokushin" scams.
