Founder's Story

Hello!


I founded whistlekick in 2010 for a simple reason - I was tired of poor-quality sparring gear. I felt trapped in a cycle - I'd purchase new sparring gear, get excited the first few times I used it, and then disappointed when I saw the first tear.

I'd force myself to use my sparring gear for a year before buying new gear. I didn't want to keep throwing it away and replacing it, but I didn't know what else to do. I knew I couldn't be the only one wanting a better option...

Eventually, I couldn't take it anymore. I spent dozens of hours scouring the internet, looking for a company that was making better sparring gear. I couldn't find one.

So I started one.

Fast forward a few years and whistlekick now makes the best sparring gear available. It's taken a lot of time, money and sweat, but I'm thrilled with the product and I stand behind it, personally.

Thank you for your time and I hope we can earn your business. Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have. Martial arts has always been my passion, and I hope that's evident in the quality and detail we pay to every piece of gear, every clothing item, and every customer.

Yours in the martial arts,

Jeremy Lesniak
