The concept of the fist. The mystical powers within. Serpentine intuition. A steady beat back to the baddest set of monks that ever walked this planet. With this new line we pay homage to the spiritual birthplace of martial arts and celebrate the enduring power of Shaolin Kung Fu.

On this day in 2001, the greatness of Allen Iverson was truly recognized as he became the shortest player to ever win the regular-season MVP award. Bubba Chuck had to go to hell and back before he made it to the top but he never stopped fighting. The 6ft guard had the answer to every question asked of him in high school sports. In his junior year he lead both his football and basketball teams to state chips and picked up the Associated Press High School Player Of The Year award in both sports too. 'Bubba Chuck' was a dual-sport star with a choice to make, pro football or pro basketball. When talking about pure ability and athleticism, it's hard to look past Allen Iverson - he may well be one of the greatest all-around athletes to ever grace the hardwood.

"Train tirelessly to defeat the greatest enemy, yourself, and to discover the greatest master, yourself.” – Shi Su Yan As an extension of our Muay Thai collection we are excited to announce a brand new collaboration with Johnny Hunt and Ilaria Urbinati — Shaolin Kung Fu! Shaolin Kung Fu has always been a symbol of Chinese martial arts, a Taoist philosophy of the East that goes back to the ancient Shaolin Temple in Song Mountains, Zhengzhou, Henan Province, China. It was there, nestled deeply into the shrouded forests of the Shaoshi, that the monks developed what would become the cradle of all martial arts some 1,500 years ago. In pop culture Shaolin Kung Fu carries not only the deep reverence of early, civilized cool, but of a fun vibrancy with bursting color. The symbols themselves convey the ancient mysteries. The yin and yang. The tiger and the dragon. The crane, the leopard and the snake, tracing back to the earliest origins of martial arts. The meanings themselves extend to the very beginnings of Zen Buddhism and carry the potency of the art itself into the modern day. Shaolin Kung Fu is many things. The concept of the fist. The mystical powers within. Serpentine intuition. A steady beat back to the baddest set of monks that ever walked this planet. With this new line we pay tribute to both the spiritual birthplace of martial arts as well as the vibrant color bursts of cult favorite ‘80s kung fu films —all while celebrating the enduring power of Shaolin Kung Fu.

“I’m young, I’m handsome, I’m fast and I can’t possibly be beat.” ​– @MuhammadAli Ali famously said he was the greatest even before he knew it was true, which tells you everything about the man himself. He believed he’d be great. He became great. And he was bold and brash enough to let you know. The fight game and sports entertainment as we know it, would not be what it is today without the greatest to ever do it. We pay tribute to Muhammad Ali with our super soft, regal purple hoody.

A night of greatness. Although this is born from fantasy, there is a story behind it. These two are both part of the mutual admiration club. They were both fans of one another and appreciated not only their respective skill sets, but their philosophies. Bruce Lee had films of Muhammad Ali’s fights sent to Hong Kong while filming Enter the Dragon. On set, Bruce would watch Ali and his footwork. He would study his films in reverse meticulously. In this fantasy, we muse about the "What if?". What if @MuhammadAli and @BruceLee had a chance to meet, train and spar together? Link in bio #RootsofFight #KnowYourRoots

“This is the role of the mother. And in that visit I really saw clearly, for the first time, why a mother is really important. Not just because she feeds and also loves and also cuddles... but because in an interesting and maybe an eerie and other worldly way, she stands in the gap. She stands between the unknown and the known.” - Maya Angelou, Mom & Me & Mom. Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing and powerful mother’s, mother figures and soon-to-be moms out there!
