To celebrate the club's 5th anniversary in 2015 we had t-shirts made. They featured original artwork from our very own Sensei Fabio. We are about to organise a new batch of t-shirts. The design will be refreshed and printed on Neoteric™ textured fabric with inherent wickability. Just Cool JC001
The design features a daruma doll, incorporating the kenkon symbol. The back of the t-shirt has the Japanese phrase Nanakorobi Yaoki.
Darumas are still usually made of papier-mâché, have a round shape, are hollow and weighted at the bottom so that they will always return to an upright position when tilted over. In Japanese, a roly-poly toy is called okiagari, meaning to get up (oki) and arise (agari). This characteristic has come to symbolize the ability to have success, overcome adversity, and recover from misfortune. In Japanese popular culture on cards, banners and books, Daruma is often illustrated alongside the phrase "Nanakorobi Yaoki" (七転八起), translated to mean "seven times down, eight times up". - Wikipedia
