Legendary mixed martial arts fighter Enson Inoue is back in Hawaii this December with a pop-up store selling his line of Destiny Forever spiritual jewelry.
The retired MMA icon traded the fight ring for bespoke bracelets and necklaces in 2011. The Manoa native, who made Japan his home in 1990, handcrafts each one, and will work with you to customize the crystals to address your specific needs.
Much like the well-known Japanese “omamori” or good luck charms, the bracelets are believed to act as a shield for the wearer; in Japanese tradition, if these bracelets break while worn, it means the crystals absorbed the negative energy, not you.
When not beading, Enson has been busy with his travels, delving back into the MMA scene with teaching seminars, coaching some students in Japan, and getting back on the mat for jiujitsu. He is also deep in the process of writing his second book, scheduled for release in 2018.
He’ll be at Hilton Waikiki Beach on Kuhio (2500 Kuhio Avenue) from December 14 – December 24, 2017. More on Inoue’s jewelry and future appearances schedule at www.destinyforever.com.
PARKING: Valet only, $3 with validation (ask Inoue to sign ticket). Entrance on Kuhio Avenue.
WHEN: 12/14 – 12/24 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily
