Not too long ago (okay, it was back in 1976, but who’s counting?) we were a one-man operation. Based in a garage. Selling karate uniforms out of a van. Not exactly what you picture when you imagine going to buy your sparring equipment and Wavemasters, right?
But if there’s one thing you learn in martial arts, it’s that any success worth having is worth working for. No one expects to become a black belt after one week of classes. Our founder Mike Dillard, along with every employee from our early days to the present, worked hard to help Century succeed. At Century, we believe martial arts can change lives. And we don’t just talk the talk – we walk the walk. All Century employees have the opportunity to take free martial arts lessons at the company’s two on-site training studios. Classes include Brazilian jiu-jitsu, jeet kune do, karate, taekwondo and kung fu, as well as Cage Fitness and yoga.
We also try and make sure our customers get the best possible martial arts experience. We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and we’re constantly innovating to come up with even more fun, unique, practical and useful products. Century is your one-stop shop for everything martial arts, whether you need gloves for MMA, shin guards for krav maga, or sport karate weapons. We even offer tactical and home protection self-defense gear! Our online shop has a huge selection of quality martial arts supplies, such as martial arts uniforms and belts, our original Wavemaster® freestanding bags, fitness gear, sparring equipment, and much more!
Whether you’re an instructor, school owner, new student or MMA fighter, or just an enthusiast of the martial arts, Century has what you need to get the most out of your training. Century’s martial arts catalog has a wide selection of bo staffs, chucks, mats, patches, belt displays and more. Gain a competitive advantage and advance yourself as a martial artist by choosing the best training gear from Century Martial Arts.
So, that’s Century, in a nutshell! We’re really nothing more than a building full of martial artists, lead by martial artists, designing and making gear for martial artists – and that’s just the way we like it.
