Colan Totte Co., Ltd. Concludes an Advisory Contract with Professional Baseball Player Takuya Kai of the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks

Colan Totte Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Osaka, Japan; CEO: Katsumi Komatsu), a manufacturer and distributor of the Colantotte brand of magnetic health gear, concluded an advisory contract with Takuya Kai of the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks on March 1st, 2019.

Takuya Kai is known as the “Kai Cannon” for his strong throwing arm, and he also boasts a high caught stealing average. In the 2018 SMBC Japan Series, Kai achieved six consecutive caught stealings and won the Series MVP Award. He began using Colantotte products in 2017 and has experienced their effects firsthand, saying, “My blood circulation has improved thanks to their magnetic effect, and my shoulders feel easier to move.”
Takuya Kai has gone from being under a player development contract to being selected as the team’s main catcher, and a national representative.
During the off-season, he takes part in Colantotte events, and we are impressed with how much he values his fans as well as children. Our desire to provide care and support for his high level of achievement going forward has led to this contract. Colan Totte pledges to lend Takuya Kai its full support as he continues his starring role with the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks.
