We don't cut corners in the manufacture of our gear. We use the best foam, the most reinforcement and make every decision based on quality and utility. We're happy with the result, but we realize that some folks are looking for the least expensive option. We're okay with not being that option. However, we've found that our gear is far less expensive over time because it lasts longer and people replace it less frequently.
Our gear wasn't designed with marketing or cost concerns. We took a look at where other gear ripped or failed. We asked our friends and training family what they wanted to see in their version of perfect sparring gear. Then we invested lots of money and time designing, refining and improving on all of those ideas. Then we produced it and made it available for sale. There's a reason people love our martial arts gear, and it's a simple one - we loved making it! This is why we claim the tagline "The World's Best Sparring Gear" - because that's what we make.
We've sold our gear to martial arts stylists from all sorts of martial arts. From karate to kung fu, tae kwon do to tang soo do, our gear can be found on some of the best martial artists around. We've even had some orders from mixed martial arts fighters for use during their stand-up sparring training.
Most of the time this question relates to our boots. We made a video you can check out on YouTube. Helmets and shin guards should be comfortable and not obstruct vision or movement, nor should they easily twist around on the head and legs. Gloves Should be comfortable and not easily pulled off.Your fingers will extend beyond the gloves, but should be protected when the fist is closed. Our gloves are not designed to protect from open handed strikes.
Master Hopkick was inspired by our founder's pet rabbit, Uriel. Uriel has passed away but lives on as a fiery, strong superhero of a rabbit named Master Hopkick. The name came from a contest we ran on our Facebook page in 2014.
