What is T-Shirt Season?

From Memorial Day through Labor Day US Budokai students may wear our dojo Summer T instead of the traditional long-sleeve gi tops with their gi pants.  The majority of students prefer this lightweight shirt for summer training. T-Shirts are limited edition and available for pre-order now ONLY!! Each year a new t-shirt is issued and shirts may be worn for 2 summers. Don’t miss out!

2020’s purple T-shirt “Rise to the Challenge” yin/yang design may be worn AND/OR purchase a new T-shirt for Summer 2021.

This year’s design has a peace sign at its center depicted spreading out.  The design mirrors the mission of US Budokai which is to spread peace in the world.  “Budo” translates to “the way of the warrior” but a lesser-known meaning is also “the way of peace”.  We hope you wear your Budokai T with pride and help us make US Budokai’s mission a reality one student at a time.

Available in Youth Sizes XS, S, M, L and Adult Sizes XS, S, M, L, XXL, XXXL in a cotton, poly, rayon wicking tri-blend in NAVY FROST, shirts are $20 + tax.  Please message to order your shirt today.  SAMPLE SIZES ARE AVAILABLE AT THE DOJO. Unless otherwise specified, t-shirt orders will be charged to the student account on file.
