Women deserve better options than hot pink tacky gloves designed by men. Our products are designed in house by women who understand this struggle. Not only that, but our products are also tested in-house with design consultants and gender ergonomic experts. KO ensures that we are best suited to cater to female proportions and common injuries women face. So you can feel as good as you look in our gear.
"Boxing showed me that I have the power to change my own circumstances,
so why shouldn't I be able to change the gear and industry too?"
At the lowest point in my life, I hated myself, had zero self-confidence, and had no clue what to do next.
By that time, I was 20 pounds heavier and I knew my life needed a change.
Boxing was the first step on that journey.
I was terrified to step into my first class and it was intimidating to be the only girl at times.
But I knew growth meant I needed to step out of my comfort zone...
What started off as a small goal to get back in shape grew into a complete lifestyle change.
I looked better but more importantly, I felt better.
I remember throwing my first punch, and how good it felt! Entering a state of flow and letting all my anger and disappointment from the world and how inadequate it made feel out on the bag.
As I put in more hours at the gym and built out my training schedule, I grew a newfound sense of confidence and power. It was a true shift in energy and transformation.
Boxing helped me shed my limiting beliefs and I loved leaving every training session knowing that I showed up for myself.
There was only one problem: I never felt like I truly belonged!
And after speaking with other women, I realised it was a universal struggle.
I loved the sport, but not the environment, the gear, or the industry. I could never find equipment that fit me right or represented the way I wanted to show up and express myself.
I was sick of settling for gear that just felt like an afterthought and I knew women deserved better!
Because how could you train confidently without the right equipment, environment, or community to support you?
So in post-training epiphany, KO Studio was born!
Before taking my first boxing class, I had never been in a fight. I never felt like I was good enough and was afraid of taking up space.
But the sport taught me how to take hits, and above all, it gave me the confidence to fight for what I wanted in life.
Boxing showed me that I have the power to change my own circumstances, so why shouldn't I be able to change the gear and industry too?
KO Studio was born from my love for boxing and background in product design, to create everything I wish had existed when I first started!
Thank you for reading until the very end, I'm so excited that you're here on our site!
And even more excited to support you on your journey to being the best version of yourself.
So let's punch stuff 🥊 (and change the world)
