In 2003, the IPPON SHOP started as the official adidas martial arts distributor in large parts of Europe. After almost 15 years, however, it was time to go our own way. The cooperation with the 3-Stripes ended in order to focus on the own brand - IPPON GEAR. After only 3 years, IPPON GEAR is licensed by the World Judo Federation (IJF), recognized amongst Olympic and World Champions and available in 36 countries.
During the years IPPON GEAR brand building, the company initially withdrew from karate, but the network with former partners and athletes was maintained.
"It was clear to us, if we return to karate, it would only be with a karate brand that stands for quality and the same passion for martial arts as we do. Actually there was only one option for us, that was Arawaza." Stefan Kneitinger (IPPON SHOP managing director).
Discussions with Stefan Rewohl (Arawaza Germany) and Cosmin Curechean (CEO Arawaza) began almost a year ago, a common sense was found very quickly.
The IPPON SHOP is known for its individual club service and the ability to equip clubs from head to toe. That is why the focus of the Arawaza range, which is now available in the IPPON SHOP, will be on club support and fast, uncomplicated service.
"In addition to the entire Arawaza range, we can offer clubs and athletes the refinement of all products. In addition, clubs can order conveniently online with a special club discount. With our in-house embroidery and printing service and our own logistics center, we want to be the reliable karate partner in Germany and Austria." - Stefan Kneitinger (IPPON SHOP)
