- About Us
Three Tears Karate was founded in an effort to provide a one-stop shop for unique and high-quality gift items and accessories that would apeal to martial artists of all styles.
During my training as a student of traditional karate and jujustsu at the Okinawan Karate Club of Dallas, I've often found myself searching for "just the right gift" for an instructor, fellow student, and especially new black belts. However, the search wasn't always successful! It seemed that there was a distinct lack of gift items to mark a special occasion or commemorate a significant achievement.
I figured if I was having trouble finding gift items tailored for those interested in martial arts, so were others.
So I founded this site to offer something different--gift items and accessories of high quality and craftsmanship that will be enjoyed and valued for years to come. Most of the products on this site are handcrafted by artisans who specialize in different materials. The items are one-of-a-kind and share a common theme -- they are not mass produced. And many are customized solely for distribution by Three Tears Karate.
I am always on the lookout for unique accessories and gift items that relate to the art and will cotinue to expand this site. If you have ideas or suggestions, or need a personalized product that isn't on this site, please let me know!
