    In case anyone mentioned it, I'm trying to start up a business selling MMA gear and crap. I'm getting new stuff in stock every week.

    I spoke to Fazle about sponsoring this subforum, but he wants more than I could make off of it. Much more. So I am just going to let you guys know what I get in until my website is up, before I try to sell it using other means.

    Windy training gloves. Hook and Loop. Black. 16oz
    Tapout instep shin guards
    Combat Sports traditional instep shin guards
    Combat Sports Hyrbid gloves. Both blue and black
    Combat Sports grappling shin guards

    A ton of Thai jump ropes
    TU gear in case Loco is out of stock.

    Differant sizes of each product. New stuff coming in twice a week. I will start updating you guys in case you want anything. If you want something that I don't have, let me know and I will order it. PM me for prices.

    I'm probably gonna be down for some sparring gloves and headgear soon. I'm getting sick of having that shit smell linger in my hair from using the community stuff.

    Depends. Just PM me if you're interested in anything. Some companies are strict about selling below retail and I dont want to risk it right now. But if a company does not care then I will probably give you a deal better than you could get anywhere else.

    I know. I just came up with something on a whim in a few minutes. I'm not too worried about the name though. I think when dealing with a retail company people don't care much about the name as long as prices/service is decent. Not unless the name is all over the gear. In my case it will not be.

    I would like to be able to say I will be on that level one day, but it isnt something I'm expecting. So many companies require crazy buy ins, and I dont have the buying power of the top guys. I get by with my other business crap, so it isnt a last resort to make a living, ya know. I would love to get by dealing in something I love, so I'm going to do what I can to make this work...but I'm honestly expecting to be well off selling mma gear. Just a side gig.

    cool. I am hoping to open a store one day as well, possibly brick and mortar. I think however MMAwarehouse and other sites are too big to be competitive with. I'm pretty sure I want my part of my career to be MMA focused

    But mmawarehouse started as one or two people working out of an apartment, so you never know.

    I highly suggest putting in a "deal of the day" on your site. somethign like musician'sfriend's stupid deal of the day that has a direct link people can bookmark and check daily or weekly.

    Good luck man! When you get ready hit me up. Eventhough it is all competition, I dont mind helping out the sport. That is one thing I have noticed about the business. Most people are in it for the love of MMA and dont mind giving a few pointers. So I will give you any info I've learned.

    Most businesses start small and have to grow. Do not get discouraged with MMA Warehouse being successful. No matter what business you get into, there is almost always someone who has been doing it longer, and is more well off :hs: The competition is part of the fun though ;)

    I want to. Along with training logs, blogs, message boards etc. But web designers are greedy bastards and want a fortune for that. So maybe I will get to it one day, hah. Or learn to do it myself...which right now I really don't have time to try and work out.

    Yo man, just a side note, I learned about All or Nothing from seeing your Brandon Bond sleeve on here. I will keep an eye on your shit. Good prices and local shipping are always awesome.

    Bangin... I'm going to lock this. As much as I appreciate what you're doing for the cage crew, in order to advertise, you really need to get a service provider subscription.
