Kyokushinkai Karate Embroidery

We like the idea to have embroidered Japanese calligraphy on our t-shirts or jackets. It can easily be done by taking some random images from internet but nobody can guarantee the quality, proper form of calligraphy and their meaning.

Our idea to make our jackets with embroidered Kyokushinkai Karate calligraphy begins with the art work of Masakazu Miyanaga - Japanese painter and calligraphy master who made artistic drawings for our designs.

Calligraphies were painted on special paper which doesn’t absorb ink and let the ink dry.  And it was just the beginning of the transformation process from the ink calligraphy to the final embroidery on our jackets. An important part of making calligraphies is to know the sequence of drawings, proportion and directions of movements. There are rules which make calligraphy perfect and knowing these rules together with manual, artistic skills make calligraphy not only readable but also beautiful.

So, to know the sequence was an important message to our computer designer to write the program which can reflect these rules and make our designs special. Every beat of the needle with thread shows the direction of the brush flow and makes the embroidery special.

This type of clothing which fits to the anathomical shape of the body, firmly compressing the joints and the muscles, helps to stabilize them and improves their stability and prevents injuries.

It is also researched and proven that muscles and joints enhance better and faster their mobility while being gently compressed.

On top of it, compression t-shirt keeps the body warm. Even sweating excessively, with compression t-shirt, you don’t get the feeling that your body is wet.  It doesnt absorb water and transports it outside.  It dries fast, so it is also easy to wash and get ready to use for the next training session the same day.

Faster joint and muscle recovery and relieve muscle and joint stiffness and soreness is another reason of wearing compression clothes, this time after the training. We will introduce our own Karate-Outfit compression t-shirt from November 2014, dedicated to karate fighters.
