Our History

Martial Arts Way of life

Out of all the cool things we have to write on this page, we believe it's important to start by saying that you are dealing with true martial artists. We are a group of people that's deeply connected to the martial arts. We are very passionate about the work we do and how it impacts the lives of thousands of other likeminded people around the world. 

Most of our customers are average people who love martial arts and appreciate Japanese craftsmanship & design. However we also cater to a large number of professional fighters and famous instructors, as well as major international organisations. Among them you will find K-1 & Dream, Sengoku, International Karate Federation IKO, International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation IBJJF, Kyokushinkai Organisation, Shooto, Pancrase, ZST MMA and others.

ChokeSports at Pride GP 2006

We've come a long way

It all started in the early 2000's, in the magical days of Pride FC in Tokyo. Back when "modern" martial arts like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA had conquered the center stage in the Japanese rings. The mix of new ideas and traditional concepts, having the Shinjuku neon lights as the backdrop, was the trigger point for a seed to be planted. Choke Enterprises LLC was founded in 2006 in Denmark and has since expanded into an international company headquartered in the United States.

Our dedicated webshop ChokeSports.com has been in business for over a decade. Today it is one of the most respected and traditional shops for Japanese martial arts gear and apparel. We have built a solid reputation for high quality, exclusive items and first class customer service. ChokeSports.com has thousands of regular customers all across the globe and ships worlwide on a daily basis.

Don't take our word for it: Read the real customer reviews.

Martial Arts Excellence: Japanese Craftsmanship & Design

We are the official international partners of prestigious Japanese brands Isami & Reversal RVDDW. We are involved in product development, marketing and distribution. In other words, you are dealing directly with the producers. Unlike most webshops, the fact that we specialize in these two brands allows our staff to be knowlegeable about the entire catalog of products we distribute. You can easily tell the difference when you contact our customer support, for example.

Our products are the result of decades of commitment to martial arts excellence. We have two factories in the outskirts of Tokyo, Japan, plus a number of selected international suppliers and contractors. All our products go through a complete development phase and strict quality-check before reaching our retail shops in Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Seoul and the web-distribution center in Saitama.
