Our Story

I have been a martial arts enthusiast for 10 years doing Taekwondo, and now I have been doing grappling and MMA for about 15 years.

During training there is a sparring session. This is an important exercise, but at the same time it is a session where the potential for injury is high.

In fact, I have had many injuries, most of them during sparring.

Various protective gear already exists to prevent injuries, but there is still room for improvement. Therefore, I launched SPARS to realize products and ideas to finish sparring without injury.

Finish Sparring Safely.
We took the letters of this phrase and named it SPARS.

The brand colors are black and white.

The icon of SPARS is the southern tamandua, also called the lesser anteater or the collar anteater. The pattern looks cute, like they are wearing wrestling clothes. In fact, when they fight, they look like they are wrestling or grappling.
