ありがとうございます!

Our new Karate inspired clothing range was featured in several Okinawan newspapers and on the evening news last night. We have been getting a fantastic response locally and already the new shirts are being snapped up by local karateka (yes you will see some very well known Okinawan karate sensei wearing these!) and karate organisations including the new Karate Promotion Dept at Okinawa Prefecture who just bought 10 shirts for all their staff. Production is limited to just 500 shirts this year (just 100 of each of the 5 designs) so don’t miss out – order on our website (www.dojo-okinawa.com) or visit us at The DOJO Bar in Okinawa.

OKINAWA KARATE SHIRTS FOR SALE INTERNATIONALLY

July 6, 2016 Ryukyu Shimpo

CHALLENGE Okinawa, which specializes in karate-related products and event production, together with T-shirt designing and production company Ryukyu Piras, have created an Okinawan karate-themed shirt. Shirts are being released in a limited quantity. The creators are promoting sales not only domestically but also internationally. All new products are parts of the “OKINAWA DOJO OF LIFE” brand collection. There are five types of karate shima (island) shirts. The suggested retail price for them is 11,000 yen (excluding tax). There are four types of T-shirts, polo shirts, jackets, and hoodies. The products are sold at Ryukyu Piras Ukishimadori shop, Mihama Depot Island shop, and DOJO Bar, which is managed by CHALLENGE Okinawa.

On July 5 at the Okinawa General Bureau in Naha City, the two companies held a presentation of the new products. A representative of CHALLENGE Okinawa James Pankiewicz said, “All processes from the design to the sewing of the new products are done in Okinawa. We hope the shirts will be worn not only by karate practitioners but also by others like tourists.”

In 2011, CHALLENGE Okinawa opened an international karate bar or the DOJO Bar. While they have already been selling original shirts at the bar, they created a brand to diversify their products.

Mayor of Yomitan Village

2014年10月25日「沖縄空手の日」世界百型デモンストレーションの開催、まことにおめでとうございます。開催地であります沖縄県読谷村を代表いたしまして、世界中からお越しの愛好家の皆様方を心から歓迎申し上げます。
さて、三山時代、琉球王国が中国を中心とした海外貿易によってその栄華を極める中、琉球の空手道・古武道においてもその型や技、精神性がより研ぎ澄まされ、現在では世界各国で5,000人以上の方々がその道を究めるべく、日々精進を重ねるほどに発展しております。
私ども読谷村におきましても「沖縄空手道古武道研修センター」を有し、2013年8月にはワールド王修会・第4回沖縄小林流空手道古武道大会が開催されるなど、沖縄空手道・古武道に縁の深い土地となっております。
今回、沖縄県読谷村が誇る世界遺産『座喜味城跡』においてデモンストレーションが世界同時開催で行われることとなり、再び空手道・古武道をとおして沖縄と世界が一つになれる、素晴らしい機会となりますことに、心からの感謝と敬意を申し上げます。
また、空手・古武道の鍛錬はもとより、読谷村の豊かな自然と読谷山花織やヤチムンといった伝統工芸、伝統文化に触れられ、そして地元食材を使った料理を味わいながら、互いの親交を深めていただければ幸いに存じます。
結びに、沖縄空手道・古武道が全世界に発信され、今後ますます発展してまいりますことを心より祈念申し上げ、ごあいさつといたします。

It is with great delight and honour that the Yomitan Village will host the opening of the 100 Kata demonstration event on October 25th, 2014, Okinawa’s official Karate Day.

The Yomitan area, well-known for its beautiful nature and its rich history in traditional arts and crafts is also the home place of the Okinawa Karate Seminar Center and a regular host of karate events taking place in Okinawa every year. The chosen location for the 100 Kata demonstration is Zakimi Castle, designated as a World Heritage Site which makes it particularly suitable for this worldwide event.

We offer our wholehearted support to the event and invite everyone to take part in this unique, new event on October 25th, Okinawa’s Karate Day for 2014!
