Century was founded in 1976. Although we were on the small side then â€“ just one man working out of his garage â€“ weâ€™ve since grown into the worldwide leader in martial arts equipment. Along the way, Century has been responsible for some major innovations within the industry. We were one of the first martial arts companies to create a website, allowing our customers to easily place orders and access digital resources. Century has also designed some of the best known and most iconic pieces of martial arts gear, like the WavemasterÂ®, the original freestanding training bag, and the BOBÂ® body opponent bag. BOBÂ® bags frequently pop up in TV shows and movies, including â€˜The Office,â€™ â€˜Deadpool,â€™ â€˜Justified,â€™ â€˜Horrible Bosses,â€™ â€˜Parks and Rec,â€™ â€˜Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,â€™ and â€˜Elementary,â€™ to name just a few!
