TheMacLife

To Celebrate the new YOUTUBE channel TheMacLife I thought I'd give a little introduction to our man with the Cam Mr Colin Byrne of Shinobi Academy Lagos! Around 2010 I'd started talking to this Irish guy Colin in Lagos, Portugal. When I first met Colin he was working on a project called "Surf Jitsu" I had started my first business a year earlier and so we had some synergies plus the place sounded cool.. sun, sea, surf and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  Wow Heaven! So Out there I went... After a fun trip to meet my new friend he mentioned this mate of his I should keep an eye on in the MMA world; even fired me his email in case we could hook him up with some kit from my new...

Revgear S3 Boxing Glove (Sentinel 3) in Production

Team Revgear 2016

Since 1996 with Marco Ruas being the first big name fighter to endorse the brand the list of fighters who have been part of Team Revgear over the years is like a who's who of the Mixed Martial Arts world.  Notable entries to the list would be Brazilian stars from the Kings MMA stable led by the legendary Kings MMA Coach Rafael Cordiero such as Fabricio Werdum and Renalto Sobral, American fighters such as Ben Rothwell , Jamie Varner  & Dwayne Ludwig or more close to home the now face of UFC Europe Dan Hardy and the Poster boy Jimi Manuwa. But the article here is not about the past it's about the future; there is a wind of change in the fight game as...

New Spartan III MMA Shorts in the Pipeline

Historically Revgear have made some of the best quality MMA shorts of both the Board and Vale Tudo style variety in the business for many years but have suffered from a lack of variety in colours and styles so albeit the old motto of quality not quantity has definitely been exercised it has also been a stumbling block in terms of choice that ultimately mean't only the more discerning Mixed Martial Artists especially in Europe were wearing the Revgear brand. This is set to change with new lines of shorts in the production line with release dates of early summer scheduled and the hot news is not only will there be new colours but the excellent Spartan III lines will be adding a shortened version taking...
