Why whistlekick?

One of the questions I hear, often, is "why?"

There are a number of companies, large and small, producing a greater variety of products than ever before. Many of these products are inexpensive, available everywhere, and they work.

The short of it is, I didn't want products that just work. I wanted products that were great. I've spent my entire life in martial arts, and I've always been taught to continue making things better. I wanted a company that lived by that mantra.

I saw a gap in the market - so few were making great products and reinvesting their resources into the martial arts community. When we launched our first products in 2013 they were well received, and people started to take notice of what we were doing.

Since then we've added, changed, pivoted, and grown. Sort of the way we all do in our training. Our company is not the same today as it was 5 years ago, and I suspect it will change further over the next 5 years. What will never change, however, is our dedication to you. 

This company was founded by martial artists, for martial artists. Everything we do is with the global martial arts community in mind. We stand behind our products, services, and events in the same way we all stand behind our training. 

We're growing, and I have all of you to thank for that. There are few guarantees in this world, and I won't be so arrogant as to promise anything but this single pledge:

I, and the people I work with, will always do our best to serve you, our fellow martial artists.

Hopefully, you'll give us a try. If there's anything we can do, please don't hesitate to reach out. My personal email is jeremy AT whistlekick.com (by not linking it I'll get less spam. We all hate spam, don't we?)

Thank you for reading this.

Yours in the martial arts,
Jeremy Lesniak
