    Hayabusa Pulls Rising Sun Gi Design



    Since Georges St-Pierre wore our walkout gi at UFC 158 we have received attention surrounding the negative connotation of the rising sun graphic used. The last thing we want is to offend or alienate anyone with the choice of design on our products.

    We at Hayabusa have the utmost respect for culture and history and appreciate all of our customers worldwide. As such, we accept full responsibility for this design and are taking all complaints and comments very seriously.

    The gi worn by GSP will not be brought to market. In addition, we will be very conscious of this specific design element when developing future communication materials and products.

    Please accept our sincerest apology for any offence this has caused. If you have any questions or comments regarding this matter, please feel free to discuss it with us at customerservice@hayabusafightwear.com. One of our representatives will be happy to assist you.

    Sincerely,

    Craig Clement
    Co-President
    Hayabusa Fightwear Inc.

    Yeah, that didn't take long. I figured they would just pull the gi design.

    of course they pulled it, makes business sense to do so.

    it still doesn't mean that it's wrong to use the rising sun logo, however.

    Good. As a person who knows a few christians I've been offended by that gi due to the persecution of christians in Japan in the 17th century. Good riddance I say!

    Well, honestly I can't pretend I gave a **** about it, however I remember the thread on here a while back, and I'm pleased for those people for those people who WERE offended. We wouldn't want anyone to get offended now, would we?

    To those people who are offended by the rising sun logo, really, I'm happy for you/

    Not many Westerners understand the nature of the atrocities the Japanese committed on the Chinese and Korean people. As a person who has read a little on the matter, I can tell you, they did some truly despicable things which made the Nazi death camps look like vacation retreats by comparison.

    Here's a few links about one of the worst incidents, the Rape of Nanking, if you're interested in learning more:

    Here is a two part video on Youtube. Due to the graphic nature of the crimes filmed, it is NSFW in the latter parts.

    Those people need to stop being so sensitive about their grandparents being lined up and shot!

    Saying that you have strong emotional feelings about something that you have no connection to is disingenuous.
