You didn’t just stumble upon our website. Chances are, you’ve long been searching for quality martial arts products to suit your training or competing needs.

We feel you.

And this is the groundwork of our company, the very reason why our business exists. We were founded on the idea that martial arts products didn't have to be mass-produced junk. Everything we do is with quality and value in mind, just like the way we train. Yes - we're martial artists, too! You can read the story from our founder here.

About Us

Whistlekick, LLC was founded in 2010 with the hope to improve on the poor-quality protective sparring gear that is so common in today's karate, tae kwon do and other martial arts schools. It took a significant amount of time and capital to launch whistlekick, but it was worth the wait and every penny. We think you'll agree.

Today, whistlekick has a wide array of gear and products offered for every athlete, martial artist or aficionado of the various traditional martial arts. Our sparring gear is engineered to enhance strength and speed, providing maximum mobility while maintaining comfort to prevent unnecessary injury. We also recently launched an apparel line suited for an active lifestyle.

whistlekick martial arts sparring gear and traditional martial arts apparel: designed and proudly made for practitioners of the TMA (traditional martial arts). We're pleased to serve those that practice and train in various martial arts - karate in all forms (shotokan, kenpo, kyokushin, goju, isshinryu, etc), tae kwon do (taekwondo or tkd), kung fu, tang soo do as well as the more modern arts or sport martial arts devotees.

We believe that all martial arts have value, and everyone should train in the arts that bring them the highest level of happiness and fulfillment.
