We are a 4th generation family owned and operated martial arts supply store in the Stratchcona neighbourhood of Vancouver, Canada.
Our start in the industry was in 1956 as Japanese importers running a general store carrying everything from old school unbleached karate/judo uniforms, baseball gloves, fishing supplies as well as dishes, ornaments and snack foods mainly targeting the Japanese community living in the area which was once known as Japan town.
We have been at our current location since 1970. At that time we had grown our karate and judo lines to the point that martial arts had become half of our store and by the late 1990's martial arts supplies were all we sold.
The rise of the UFC in the late 00's to the mainstream led us to expand again - this time into Boxing, Kickboxing and MMA fight gear. Now, with over 1100 unique items in the store we have the largest martial arts retail store front in Western Canada. Please come visit us!
