Toronto, ON Canada. September 8th, 2018. 20/20 Armor today announced the signing of its newest client, OMAC World Class Martial Arts. OMAC, a taekwondo school franchise in Ontario, Canada with 5 locations and over 2,000 students has chosen 20/20 Armor to provide its locations with electronic training vests.
“Innovation and consistent improvement have always been OMAC’s philosophy and mission, therefore we felt that 20/20 Armor fit that equation for our formula. After meeting with Master Ali Ghafour and William Sexton, we knew that this new state of the art technology would bring our students’ experience to a whole new level. This is why OMAC chose 20/20 Armor and we couldn’t be more delighted. We thank 20/20 Armor for what they are doing for the innovation in martial arts and are excited to see the future of martial arts training!”
Harrison Chan – President OMAC World Class Martial Arts
20/20 Armor products are designed for martial art club owners looking to attract and retain their students. The vests can be worn by a person or put on a punching bag. The vests require no computers to operate, making it easy to use in a busy class setting. The vests have an integrated light feedback display and 10 training modes that improves a martial art practitioners speed, power timing and reaction.
“Prior to 20/20 Armor, students would guess what their score was during training. This is the same as running the 100 meters and guessing your time. We have taken the guessing out of training and made the scoring system just like the video games so that it is relevant to kids, and easy to understand by the general public. It keeps kids engaged in training longer and makes working out not a chore because now they have instant feedback and can relate training to something they already love – video games. Master Harrison Chan shares the same vision as 20/20 Armor and we are proud to have him and OMAC as the largest order to date.”
Ali Ghafour – co-founder and CEO, 20/20 Armor
20/20 Armor will provide OMAC with electronic training vests for its 5 locations and work closely with OMAC for development of new product lines to help martial art clubs grow and scale.
