The Kodokan Tee
Inspired by a vintage photo of hundreds of judokas training in the late 1900’s while we can only dream of training at our currently shutdown academy. This image was taken sometime between 1898 and 1920 at the old Ōtsuka Sakashita-chō Kōdōkan dōjō in Tōkyō, Koishikawa-ward. This legendary 314-mat practice hall was opened in January, 1898. Senior instructors would sometimes wear haori (Japanese traditional formal clothing for men) and join in without changing into their Judo uniform.
Each piece is printed in Los Angeles, CA, on 100% Cotton tees and feature an athletic fit.
