20/20 Armor, the leader in electronic training systems for martial arts, announced today that they have signed a contract to make Akross Canada their first official distributor. Akross Canada was founded by former Taekwondo athletes for Taekwondo athletes and is renowned for the excellence of their products and their high quality customer service.
“20/20 Armor is the most exciting training tool in martial arts in decades,” says Mr. Emin Akhoundov, owner of Akross Canada. “This revolutionary video game scoring vest attracts new students who weren’t interested in martial arts before by using video games as an entry point to the sport. School owners have found it dramatically reduces the number of drop-outs when sparring is introduced because students focus on playing the game rather than worrying about hitting or being hit. In the classroom it serves as a private instructor giving instant feedback that helps students increase their speed, accuracy, timing and strength. By allowing students to see their progress, it keeps them engaged in their training and dramatically increases school owner’s retention rates. The revenue growth potential of this product is staggering and we can’t wait to give our customers access to this game changing technology. ”
20/20 Armor CEO Ali Ghafour believes that Akross is the perfect distribution partner. Akross and 20/20 Armor have a shared vision of elevating the sport of Taekwondo and providing Canadian athletes with the tools they need to excel.
“We develop all our products with 5 pillars in mind, they must: be easy to use, relevant to kids today, make school owners money, teach martial arts fundamentals and grow the Taekwondo market worldwide,” says Ghafour. “Akross shares our mission to grow this sport and move it into the future. We are going to build a strong relationship to ensure our distributor’s customers are well taken care of and deliver leading edge products that make schools and athletes better.”
