Over 30 Years of Serving Martial Arts
For over 30 years, Macho has been leading the martial arts industry. It was 8th degree Tae Kwon Do black belt Grandmaster Soo Se Cho who began the company in 1980 after recognizing a need for greater safety in martial arts training and competition. It was his passion. Armed with nearly 30 years of martial arts training and teaching experience from Korea to Turkey to the U.S., Master Cho designed Macho's original line of martial arts sparring gear, enlisting his own Tae Kwon Do students to try out his inventions, advances and improvements.
First it was head gear, and soon followed product performance and safety innovations that are now considered standard. Macho put competitive products in the spotlight, and was committed to solving the need for safety in martial arts sparring competition. It was the driving force for the many innovations that positioned Macho as a leader in product development, cutting-edge design and superior performance. As Macho grew, it maintained Master Cho's vision of integrity for quality improvements and became the prime innovator in manufacturing martial arts gear and training equipment. We helped school owners bring up generations of competitors and given support to the sport's professionals as they rose to be champions in their field.
We proudly remain at the cutting edge when it comes to excellence in martial arts supplies and equipment and look forward to another 30 years of helping martial artists be their best.
