THREADS is a small family business, owned and staffed by Harry and Julie Shaw, which has been in existence since 1989. The business was originated to cater for the needs of local clubs and societies. It followed our children into the world of JUDO, then rapidly expanded into KARATE and TAEKWONDO. From that first day in 1989 to the present time, we have striven to offer a very personal service to all, especially the MARTIAL ARTIST.

We are therefore well aware, that the presentation of your black belt is a very special occasion, marking the culmination of years of hard work, dedicated training, self-discipline and not infrequent bouts of pain.

Over the years, we have acquired the patronage of many notable schools, academies and individual players in the world of Martial Arts, who in many instances have become friends and are still kind enough to bring their business to us.

Just one or two are -: Leadership M.A. , Matt Fiddes and Family Martial Arts. We were privileged to be embroiderers to the British A Judo Team and British Olympic Judo Squads.
