With the holidays coming up, there are a couple of things going on around the site that I’d like to keep you up on. This is just a quick little interlude between regular articles.


As a reminder, there is currently a contest going on. The fine people at MMA Zone offered up some pretty cool prizes to give away to fans of ikigaiway. In order to be entered into the drawing, all you have to do is leave a comment here on the site, on facebook, or on twitter (see the contest page for more details).

Christmas Gifts

For anyone looking for Christmas gift ideas, a company I work with called Mokuso Martial Arts Supplies is running a pretty great deal. They sell custom fitted, high quality uniforms from the Tokyodo Company in Japan.

From November 14th, to December 1st, Mokuso is offering a 10% discount on the Tokyodo Dogi Line. Built on top of an imbedded 5% discount,this makes for a rare deal (15% off compared to the Japanese retail prices). Available on AT-Series, K(b)-10, HR-series, SP-1000 and the WKF-Series. Input coupon code ‘kerstfeest’ at checkout.

Also TBO Tech is running a special specifically for ikigaway fans. At the checkout for any purchase you make input the coupon code ‘ikigai’ for 10% off your purchase. This is a great chance to get a self defense item you’ve been thinking about for yourself or a loved one that needs a little extra protection.

Well Wishes

I’d like to wish everybody State-Side a happy Thanksgiving – I hope you and your families have a safe and enjoyable holiday. To everyone not indulging in the turkey event, have a great week all the same.
