Hayabusa (pronounced hi-ya-boo-sa) is the Japanese word for peregrine falcon and was founded in 2006 by Ken Clement, Craig Clement, and David Zikakis.
Initial product offerings included a specialized series of fight gloves, rash guards and fight shorts, since these were the fundamental training tools fighters required. The products were created with a focus on producing equipment and apparel that could meet and exceed the requirements and demands of a new era of athletes. Hayabusa has maintained a research-based approach to conceptualizing, designing, testing and manufacturing its products. These are driving factors as to how Hayabusa constructs the best equipment in terms of comfort, fit, feel, and most importantly, performance and safety.
A martial artist is continuously learning and improving their craft, a philosophy called Kaizen. Hayabusa has adapted the same Kaizen approach as martial artists by continuously improving in all aspects of business. Whether it is product development, performance research or business processes, Hayabusa pushes to raise the bar and challenge the status quo.
