New Wholesale Site Underway

Posted by Shopify Post Author on

Over the last few weeks we've been fielding a growing number of wholesale inquiries. During that time we've spoken with new, prospective and recurring wholesale customers about what they want from us. We kept coming back to the same answer - everyone wanted things to be easy. We realized that while our existing wholesale order process had some major advantages, it wasn't as easy as it could be. We're now neck-deep in building a brand new wholesale-only website. It won't be fancy, but it will be simple. We're also rolling out some new ideas that we hope you like - things that...

9th Annual North East Open Tournament

Posted by Shopify Post Author on

This past Saturday we attended the North East Open tournament in Albany, New York. This was the 9th year of the event, hosted by Master Adam Grogin and Pil-Sung Martial Arts.  The venue was the Marriott hotel and the place was packed. More often now, we're being given the option to setup the evening before. That's huge for us, as our booth setup takes several hours. We'd much rather spend those early morning hours catching a bit more sleep and talking to early attendees rather than unloading and unpacking. Thank you to the event for allowing this and we hope...

Event Review: 33rd Annual Super Summer Seminars

Posted by Shopify Post Author on

I had the opportunity to head to Herkimer, NY last weekend for two full days of martial arts training dubbed the Super Summer Seminars. This was the 33rd year of the event, which was held at Herkimer College. It was an exciting and busy weekend, but one that was certainly worthwhile. Many of us have trained at martial arts summer camps - you go somewhere, pitch a tent and sleep on the ground. By the end of the weekend, you're not sure if you're sore from the training or sleeping in the dirt. Not so with SSS, as the event...
