Grand Opening: Official KARATEbyJesse T-Shirt Store!

By Jesse | 33 Comments

Yup, that’s right folks!

My Official Super Awesome Über Cool KARATEbyJesse T-Shirt Store is open!

Visit it here!

As if you hadn’t already figured it out, I’m sitting here with a tall glass of champagne, laughing at all the hilarious t-shirt designs I made. Horse-jutsu? Haha! Samurphant? Get outta here!

Aah… my stomach hurts…

Anyway, at this point you’re probably all confused, so let me take it from the very beginning:

Click to visit the store!

Last week I teamed up with a t-shirt company and designed around 130 t-shirts(!) with fun/cool/weird/awesome Karate motives - that are printed individually for you and ready to ship within 24-48 hours of ordering! Through a super secure online store, obviously.

The idea?

To make craploads of money To let the world know about your passion!

Karate nerds unite!

7424968-18148750And you know what? It’s not even expensive! For instance, look at the t-shirt to the right here:  –>

That’s my favorite one ["I HELPED KARATEbyJesse BECOME AN INTERNET CELEBRITY AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY T-SHIRT!"], and it only costs $19!


That’s like… a family size pizza!?

The difference being, you won’t look totally awesome wearing a family size pizza! And you won’t be laughing either! (But I would, so if you do decide to actually wear a family size pizza, please send me a picture.)

To be honest, I really don’t know how they can print, ship and sell the t-shirts for these competitive prices, but the quality is excellent so I’m not complaining!

(Yes, I already bought three myself… heh.)

Anyways… did I mention it’s FREE shipping in the US?

(For other cool European/Asian/South American people it’s around +$13 for shipping. And since the dollar is pretty low at the moment, don’t hesitate! Buy fifteen now!)

Other than that, I guess there’s nothing more to say. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot: You can also design YOUR OWN t-shirt (here) if my humor is too bad for you. So, now you know! Get going and release your inner Karate nerd!

Also, if you have cool ideas for other t-shirt designs, shoot me a comment below! I’m making this for you guys, so let me know everything!

Anyway, visit the shop and let me know what you think!

Karate T-shirt mania has just begun!

    You have a Kanbun Uechi fan t-shirt but its a picture of Kanei Uechi.

      April 29, 2011 at 12:54 pm

      Hey, girlz can wear the t-shirts too! :)

        Baggy t-shirts don’t look so good on girls though! …I would make my own but they just wont be as witty! If your making another load then a couple for the girls would be fab!!

        Gotta say I love the designs!! :oD

    Sweet, gonna buy one (or MANY) later. Wouldn’t it be great with one “standard” print as well. I’m thinking just the “KarateByJesse”-logo?

    • Jesse

      April 30, 2011 at 8:54 am

      There is a KbJ print on some t-shirts!

    Became an internet celebrity and all I got was this lousy T-shirt, would make more sense then “become”

    • Jesse

      April 30, 2011 at 9:17 am

      I don’t agree, but feel free to make your own t-shirt with such a print, in the Create-Your-Own section!

      • Viking

        April 30, 2011 at 5:38 pm

        “Become” is tense before in the future. “Got” tense is in the past. So you got something before you became it. As you would say you don’t understand. I would prefer to laugh with you than at you. I don’t mind if you don’t agree you choice to be wrong. You said it is your 4th language trying to be helpful more than annoying.

          Yes, and I appreciate your help, thank you! :)

            Danish, English, Japanese and …?

          • Jesse

            May 2, 2011 at 10:31 am

            Haha! Add Swedish and Finnish, remove that horrible Danish!

    • diego romero

      April 30, 2011 at 9:19 pm

      you would be correct, but it’s not “become an internet celebrity”, it’s “i helped karatebyjesse become an internet celebrity”, so jesse’s spelling is right :).

      also, “than”, not “then” :p

      • Viking

        May 1, 2011 at 12:56 pm

        Agreed but then a celebrity is a person not a site, I stand corrected as didn’t read the first part correctly looks different in daylight apologies to Jesse.

    • Jesse

      May 1, 2011 at 6:09 pm

      • Francis

        May 3, 2011 at 1:16 am

    Ironic how you had an article explaining why we shouldn’t tell people we practice karate, but you sell shirts that do just that!

    • Jesse

      October 25, 2013 at 4:55 pm

      Well… some people never listen to what I say, Chris-san. So I might as well sell them some t-shirts :)
