Origin of Karate Headbands
Hachimaki is a piece or strip of cloth that is tied around the head, known as the customary headgear worn in Japan. This piece of cloth is usually worn with designs and with a written saying or motto which serves as an accessory for the forehead. Headband is also worn by warriors, protestor and anyone who does not want their sweats from falling into their eyes.
During the World War II, the trope was in the fighter pilots of Japan, when they used bandanas having the word "Kamikaze" upon it, which had been an indication to the "Divine Wind" that drove off the Mongol invasion of Japan centuries earlier until to that point.
The act of putting headband on your forehead is a great way of expressing one’s willpower and change in mood but it need not involve violence. Some people wear a headband with a slogan or motto relevant to their training is usually the common purpose of a headband.
