About Piranha Gear

We enjoy using the same clothing and equipment we sell - that's why we started the company - so we could get good gear at reasonable prices. We were tired of getting stuff that wore out too soon, wasn't comfortable or just cost more than it should.  Worse yet - if it didn't work out (no pun intended...), we were stuck with it!

Since it didn't make sense to design and manufacture stuff for just a couple of people or limit it to our work-out partners, we took the big plunge and by 2004 we had a business. Our first product was a white single-weave Jiu-Jitsu Kimono. In the first month, we sold 3 on eBay under the seller name "Jiu-Jitsu-Style" and we were thrilled!

Today Piranha Gear ships our three different brands ("Jiu-Jitsu Style", "Shock Wave Fight Gear", and "Piranha Gear") to schools, academies, and individuals around the world. We feel grateful for the wonderful feedback from literally tens of thousands of customers.

We try to treat everyone the way we like to be treated. It’s not a “company mission statement” (so many companies seem to ignore theirs anyway) – it’s just the right thing to do.

To us, the ultimate compliment has been that so many of our orders come from people that have bought gear from us before or came to us recommended by their friends – rather than because they found "cheap stuff on the web."

Almost everyone in the company has a martial arts background (from a variety of styles). Call us and find out just how passionate we are about martial arts.

Most of the gear we sell was developed or added to our product lines because we liked it and wanted to use it. Yes, there are some obvious holes in our catalog - we don't carry EVERYTHING you need for EVERY STYLE. If we can't make "it" better or cheaper, we figure there are other places to get "it".

But we can guarantee that what we do carry, you will be happy with...
