1 hour wall between the Dojo and the E-BOGU warehouse

1 hour wall is an insulated wall that, if there is a fire, the fire does not pass through from one side of the wall to the other. This used to be a large loading area for the E-BOGU warehouse, but it has now been divided in two. One side will continue to be a warehouse. The other side will be the future lobby for the Dojo.

Separation wall is almost done

This is the wall that separates the Dojo and the warehouse. Now that the wall is up, the space feels smaller…

Separation Wall between the Dojo and the E-BOGU warehouse

We have started building the separation wall between the Dojo and the warehouse. This wall needs to be an “1 hour wall”, i.e. in case of a fire, the fire will not go from one side to the other.

BUTOKUDEN Kendo Dojo Floor Materials are arriving!

The material for the Dojo floor has started to arrive.
This is the material that is going to go on the top layer. It is Canadian maple. The smell of the wood is very nice!

We have moved!

We moved all our products, and we have started the new operation at the new warehouse.
I have keep half of the warehouse clear, so we can start building the Dojo. Our lease at the old Dojo ended, so now until March, we will be practicing with Tustin Dojo.

Racks at the new warehouse

In the meanwhile, I had another crew at the new warehouse, setting up the racks, so that when the truck arrives, they can start placing the products at the correct locations. Many members from the Butokuden Dojo came out to help. Thank you all!

Good Bye Old Warehouse!

This was the home for E-BOGU since 2001. We will miss this place so much, because it was here where we grew, to become a leading Martial Arts Supplier in the world.


All Empty!

The old warehouse is empty now.
We are ready to head to Orange County.

Torrance >>> Irvine

Moving a company is not as simple as moving a home. I never realized we had so much products. Took us about 1 week to pack everything, so we can have it ready for to load the truck. We separated the staff in two. One to fulfill the orders, and other to move the products. We tried our best to minimize the delay on our shipments. I apologize if any of our customers were affected by the move.

Moving out from our old warehouse

The moving from our old warehouse in Normandie was actually harder than I expected.
Here are some picture from E-BOGU old warehouse. 20220 Normandie Ave, Torrance, CA 90502

We were there for 9 years. Thank you to all the customer and friends who visited us. We will be moving to the following address:
