Karate School Turns to Challenge Coins Plus to Help Design Custom Challenge Coins for Their Students

November 17, 2011 by lapelpinsplus

Karate is a martial art that originated in the Ryukyu Islands which is now Okinawa, Japan.  It was developed from indigenous fighting methods called te and Chinese kenpo.  It uses punching, kicking, knee and elbow strikes, and open-handed techniques.  Some styles use grappling, locks, restraints, throws, and vital point strikes.

Karate and other martial arts schools are spreading across the country.  With the emergence of mixed martial arts, karate schools like U.S. Xtreme Karate are seeing a rise in number of students enrolling.  Because of this, they wanted to create custom challenge coins to hand out.  That’s why they contacted Challenge Coins Plus.  They wanted our assistance in creating an attractive and memorable challenge coin.

Karate schools use these coins in a variety of ways.  The coin you see here is handed out to students who excel in the qualities of a warrior.  The qualities that the school focuses on are self-discipline, honor, and perseverance.  It was very important for our customer that we include these qualities on their coin.

Other uses for these coins can be to hand them out as awards when certain belts are earned.  This tiered level of achievement encourages students to be their best.  Instead of stopping when they reach the next set of requirements, they strive to move on to the next belt color.

With the competition being so tough to grow karate schools, having custom coins as part of your school will go a long way in differentiating your school from others.  Including your school name, logo, and contact info on your coins is a great tool when it comes to branding and growing your business

This coin has an oblique edge which helps enhance its artwork.  Decorative edges are just one way that customers can make their challenge coins stand out.  We offer a number of different options.  You can learn more about them by visiting our website at http://www.challengecoinsplus.com.
