In 1982, Ray Hana observed, that martial arts trainers and students could not easily purchase the types and range of Martial Arts uniforms, gear, coloured belts and accessories they needed in order to faithfully train in their Martial art of choice.
The quality, range, sizes and stocks, at the time were sparse and disrupted.At that time , the early 80s , people had to compromise and buy only what was available. Each Martial Arts, had different needs,plain, stripes, combination or even embroidery.
Ray hana was amazed at the lack of quality in the products in the market at the time and set out to develop a range of selected goods that did the job well. Ray’s belief was simple, irrespective of level of training, each belt level was an achievement worthy to be proud of.
It doesn’t matter, if you are ‘just’ a yellow belt or black belt. The journey is the same. Ray felt that “ today’s yellow belt , was going to be tomorrow’s black belt “ and the journey or the individual was equally special .
Consequently Ray was able to develop a great quality of coloured belt – where the colours are vibrant, the filling is clean, the colours do not run , the fabric does not shrink, the stitch lines are neat and straight , it is wide enough , firm enough, solid …not floppy , a consistent good length. So many attributes go into making a belt.
It is easy for many to say a belt is just a belt however, a belt is a worthy benchmark for anyone, a goal to acknowledge a point and status in a journey. Therefore , at Ray hana’s , we venerate that journey and aim to supply you with a top quality belt that you are proud to wear and adorn your karate suit when next at the dojo , or competitions.
One approach is to overload a coloured belt with branding , packaging and hyperbole which in our opinon is tacky. Ray Hana’s has a simple approach, make the belt well and be proud to sell it and the student be proud to wear it.
In this day and age, the focus is increasingly on the through put, a churn and burn approach to the Martial Process. The process to race as many people to a black belt a possible in the shortest time. This is not the venue for that philosophical discussion, perhaps in the comments below. Moreover, the point here is the consequence of the decision of the Mac dojo is to drive the cost of the belt down , creating a lowering of quality in the actual intrinsic properties of the belt. At Ray Hana’s we do not support that approach
We believe that every step of the way be done as well as possible. In karate this is called Kihon. In the end the proof of the pudding is the ability to use your martial art when threatened , physically and, or mentally. If what you have learnt does none of these things then it has been a waste of time and money. At Ray Hana’s we believe it doing things right. Not about the appearance of right. But right. This means that you can trust, that we will always work towards doing the right thing and assuring you of the best product at at any given time at that price point.
