History

The league was founded as "Kokeshi Roller Dolls" in August 2010 by Amanda Harms (known as "Pisa Cake")[2] and Nicole King ("Nurse Fight'n Bail"). It held its first practice in October, with only six members, but had twenty skaters by the end of the month, and in January 2011 formed three intraleague teams. In May, it played its first bout, an intraleague contest.[3][4] This attracted more than eight hundred fans.[2] Many of the league's members are not native Okinawans, and are often expatriate Americans in the armed forces, or come to Japan for work or with family.[3][2]

In October 2011, Kokeshi was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme,[5] and it became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2013.[6][7]

In March 2017, the league announced a rebrand as Okinawa Roller Derby, maintaining the Kokeshi Roller Dolls name for its B team.[8]
