The Real Reward is in the Training

The challenge coin design, includes many eye catching and awe inspiring elements that both senseis and students will be happy to hand out as well as show off.
The recognition challenge coin, was fashioned in a traditional round shape and includes the dojo’s official logo and related Chinese character text on one side. The opposite side was proudly and artistically used to announce the success and entitlements of the award coin’s owner.
