Interview with Corey from FightersSupply.com

Interview with Corey from FightersSupply.com

With a lot of places online to buy BJJ gear, it's always cool to get to know some of the people behind the business.  Recently, we had a chance to catch up with Corey from FightersSupply.com and learn a bit more about him, his company, and what they're passionate about.

GiReviews: Tell us a bit about your background with martial arts.

Corey:  I started my competitive wrestling career as a child travelling all over the youth wrestling circuit in Iowa.  This sport carried me through my life for approximately 12 years helping me develop a strong work ethic, discipline, and respect which helped make me the person I am today.

As an adult Jiu Jitsu was the logical transition for me giving me the ability to get back onto the mat.  Jiu Jitsu allowed me to use my wrestling skills and add another level of complexity to it with the position and submission game.  I have become an active competitor in the sport and my two children have also taken up the sport of jiu jitsu because of the discipline, respect, and life skills it teaches them.

With the online BJJ/MMA marketplace becoming increasingly saturated, what made you want to start Fighters Supply?

The market place for BJJ and MMA gear has become large with the sports growing by leaps and bounds given the introduction of the UFC into the mainstream.  My love of MMA, wrestling, and jiu jitsu has allowed me to create a business where I can not only sell goods to consumers but also allow me to provide knowledge of these sports based on my background and experience.

What do you feel makes Fighters Supply different from every other online retailer out there right now?

Fighters Supply is a specialty online store focusing on MMA, Jiu Jitsu, and Wrestling gear.  You will find that the bulk of our products focus on functional gear that can be used to train and compete.  The longer term plan for Fighters Supply is to develop into a retail storefront with hopefully more than one location.  With our headquarters based in Colorado, where the there is an abundance of mma gyms, youth wrestling programs, and jiu jitsu teams we feel there is a market to be tapped locally as well as capturing market share nationally and internationally.

When you visit our site you will get:

  • A website that is easy to navigate.
  • A broad selection of the latest functional training and competition gear.
  • Secure checkout
  • Great Deals
  • Excellent Customer Service.
You are connected with the Wounded Warrior Project.  What is your connection with them and how/why do you support them?

I have always been a big supporter of our military.  I have family members and friends that have served in various branches of the armed forces.  I have a tremendous amount of respect for those who are willing to put their lives on the line so we can enjoy the freedoms we have.  The Wounded Warrior Project supports those that have been injured in battle with programs to help them get back to a life outside of the military. Fighters Supply will take a portion if each and every sale to donate to the Wounded Warrior Project to help aid those in need.  The Wounded Warrior Project is an avenue for us to give back and say thank you to our armed forces.

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer a few questions, Corey.  Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Fighters Supply is a new company and we realize that you have a choice when selecting gear and where you purchase that gear.  All we ask is that customers visit our site and give us a chance to earn their business.  You won't be disappointed.

Update (3/19/2017)
