Damashi, or in its more traditional spelling Damashii or Tamashii signifies the inherent soul or spirit that inhabits every living person. In Budo culture Damashii is often linked to the word Yamato, the old term for Japan as it refers to the historical values of the Samurai of Integrity, Honor, Courage, Loyalty, Honesty and Compassion.
We therefore imagined a powerful warrior, wearing a simple garment that only partially covers his body, because the bare chest, arms and legs signify the struggle and the physical nature of a fight, and life itself.
The katana was already swung, and it’s now pointing down to the ground, the grip is firm, but we don’t know yet if the target has been struck, or if this warrior will have the strength to raise it once more.
The doubts are there, but then we notice a majestic phoenix rising behind his shoulder. The drawing doesn’t make a distinction if the mythical animal is really there or not, but we can imagine even if it’s not, that the fiery bird of legends of old is a manifestation of the samurai’s unrelenting spirit to rise and fight -
That’s spirit of Damashi.
THIS LISTING IS FOR THE NO-GI BUNDLE - RASHGUARD+SPATS+VALE TUDO SHORTS - Choose the Bundle option and save a few $$ on the original individual pricing!
In this new art piece we purposely brought to light a samurai in the midst of a battle against a powerful tiger. The animal's roar rattles us to our core, but the fearless samurai with his trusty katana stands his ground in this life and death battle.
VT SHORTS - The new vale tudo inspired compression shorts can be worn independently while training no gi grappling, or can be used as a first layer of protection under classic length fight shorts or a Gi.
We also used them successfully as an alternative to swimming trunks when at the pool or the beach. Premium 4-Way stretch fabric was used to insure unparalleled mobility when jogging, grappling or striking. The adjustable elastic waist features an internal drawstring for a comfortable yet firm fit necessary for all physical activity.
PLEASE NOTE: We unfortunately cannot mix and match sizes - If you are ordering a size L set for example, you'll receive one rashguard, one set of spats and one compression shorts in size Large.
Premium fit and feel, fits true to size, if you are in general a size M, go ahead and order a size M.
NOTE: This listing is for the Men/Unisex sizing - For Female sizing just choose one size smaller than usual for a comparable Women's fit - The no-gi sets are made of a stretchy material, so the fit differences between men and women's cut are minimal compared to other products.
