Fight Wear needs better design!

Posted on August 31, 2009 at 9:03pm 4 Comments

As a women in MMA (that’s mixed martial arts for those out of the whole fight training loop), I see the need for better mma apparel and gear- for women and men! Its an exploding market and an exploding sport, however fashion has just not caught on to this yet. MMA gear remains to be poorly designed in the way of practical training use. I am determined to help change this. I'm looking for designers out there that are interested in athletic apparel design. I would also like to hear any thoughts,… Continue

Okay, just let me know in the future if I can do anything to help. As far as the tech issue, I was asking if you had a tech issue when you went to sign up on our site. I noticed you added everything but didn't activate... there should have been a page with a 'Finish' button, did you get that? The reason I ask is that any help will help me reduce these errors for others who sign up.

Hi Elle,
Thanks for taking interest in my services. Your idea sounds great. Check out Maybe you can find a factory that will handle the designs and the manufacturing. Alot of factories now are able to take an idea and translate it into the design(sketch). Also,sometimes a design may not be workable for production so working directly with the factory will save cost in the beginning stages of starting your buisness. I wish you all the best and I look forward to working with you!! Have a great day.

Hey, Elle. Thanks for your support, was there a problem with your activate page when you went to sign up? Lmk so I can fix any bugs. One of my good friends out in Vegas is a fighter, do you have anything he can purchase? If you have anything you'd like me to ask him, I'll see what free input he has to offer.

My pleasure... I actually enjoy MMA. My son has been taking Judo (he is only eight). I would not want him in the octagon when he is older (I would be too worried about him), but learning MMA is certainly a good thing.

Hopefully the groups that we created tonight will help your business. You are welcome to utilize the group as you see fit. In all honesty, it is some times hard to get discussions started. Hopefully, others will find the group. After a good number of people join, it gets easier for discussions. Anyway, good luck with everything. Again, I hope the group helps you.
