NAKAMA is an art project by that focuses on the deep meaning of camaraderie. Founded in 2010, its mission is to bridge the multiple passions that create communities & subcultures. The intention of NAKAMA is not to serve just one interest, but many & be able to artistically express itself freely. Our name NAKAMA & its principals is also inspired by Eiichiro Oda's One Piece

From the beginning, this project's foundation was built by pursuing different interests and creating friendships along the way. From Drifting to Art to Music to MMA to Muay Thai to Jiu-Jitsu. We honor & celebrate the relationships forged through these passions. WE ARE NAKAMA.

This project is designed to be cohesive yet unrestrictive in its creative intent. It will pay homage to the past, look towards the future, grow/adapt organically and initiate potential.
