The company was founded in 1998 in China, in the province of Shandong. Two friends, masters of sports in Taekwondo, inspired by the idea of creating excellent equipment at affordable prices, founded the company “Kangrui Sport”. In translation by hieroglyphs from Chinese, the name of the brand means “health”, “success”, “sport”. At that time in China, the quality of equipment for Taekwondo left much to be desired, the country was closed from the world market, but it did not last long.
And yet, having quickly mastered the production of Taekwondo gear, due to the unsurpassed quality of fabrics for dobokov and tailoring, the use of high-tech, productive equipment and the strictest quality control, the brand is quickly gaining popularity in the Chinese market by sponsoring and participating in national Taekwondo championships, but soon the brand meets new challenges, abandoned by time – the development of martial arts industry.
Already with production experience, financial reserves and experience of scientific research, in the field of industrial design, the company starts developing equipment for martial arts such as boxing, Thai boxing, sanda.
It is a mistake to believe that there is nothing complicated in this. In a duel and in training, when the fist of a boxer in a glove encounters a rival or bag, the physical properties of the materials come to life. There are many factors that play: too soft properties of elasticity of gloves make it difficult to fight, increase fatigue of an athlete, give odds to the opponent, too tough – injures the athlete himself, the glove form should be anatomically comfortable for the hand, so as not to create parasitic resistance to the clenching of the fist, securely fix the wrist, provide safety and comfort. Gloves for each purpose must have their own unique characteristics. The materials of the upholstery are also subject to stringent requirements – they must be durable, not subject to breaks and drying, the material of the inner upholstery of gloves should prevent the absorption of sweat and salts during constant training.
Kangrui Sport constantly conducts scientific researches and testing of packing materials, creates special polymer foams, selecting unique combinations of polymers and binding agents that have optimal characteristics of elasticity and durability, improves sewing technologies, while not forgetting about modern trends in the field of industrial design. Factors of longevity are tested on special shock machines simulating the real situation of training, decisive factors are tested in real competitions of athletes. All this we do, in order to finally offer an excellent product, a product that will change your views on combat equipment.
Throughout its development Kangrui Sport sponsors athletes, both hopeful and accomplished champions and championships, promotes sports culture and a healthy lifestyle, success and competitiveness as a lifestyle. We believe that the qualities of character inherent in the athlete, contributing to his achievements in martial arts, will certainly contribute to the development of personality and success in business and personal life. Sport is a microcosm of real life.
Not forgetting about the development, Kangrui Sport already in 2005, enters the world markets, increases its presence in the American and European markets, the markets of Australia, Brazil and the Asian market. Actively developing, Kangrui Sport covers new markets of the sports industry, such as Greco-Roman wrestling, weightlifting, karate, wushu, offering the market a highly competitive product of excellent quality at the best prices.
In 2015, Kangrui Sport Industry becomes a public company entering the IPO on the Chinese stock market, with the delivery of IFRS accounts.
In 2017, Kangrui Sport Industry enforces a new vector in the development of the industry, full rebranding, a new level of internal automation, a new level of customer service, new production technologies, a new modern industrial design, in line with the latest trends in the sports industry, a new level of quality products, new communication technologies. The brand Kangrui Sport ceases to focus on the Chinese market and sets a new benchmark for the global equipment industry for martial arts.
Today Kangrui Sport is one of the world leaders in the production of the best equipment for martial arts.
