- About Us
In 1990, Koch Martial Arts started exclusively as a traditional Taekwondo school for children and adults in Newport, Oregon, United States. Over the years we expanded to three locations on the central Oregon coast and offered a variety of programs including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Krav Maga, Kickboxing, Mixed Martial Arts and pre-school aged classes.
In 2002, we started Koch Martial Arts & Fitness Supply as an eBay store. Originally, we opened our eBay store just to liquidate sale and clearance items from our martial arts schools. We were amazed at the number of customers asking to purchase other martial arts equipment from us. Due to numerous requests, we expanded our catalog of items to thousands of products. Our goal was to offer martial arts, boxing, and fitness items at fair prices to customers all over the world! We still have our eBay store but only use it to sell sale, clearance and promotional items. We are aneBay Top Rated Seller by maintaining an excellent eBay feedback and seller rating (click the eBay top rated seller picture for live ratings).
In 2008, we started moving are full catalog of items to this website so we could better serve our customers. We can offer a greater selection of items on this website (some manufacturers do not allow their products to be resold on eBay). In addition, our prices are lower than our past eBay store prices because we do not have to pay the 10-12% eBay seller fees through this website. We will continue to expand this website to include more products while maintaining good customer service!
In 2009 we sold our schools in Oregon and relocated to Pompano Beach, Florida so we can live in an area with warmer weather and more potential students for our new certified Krav Maga Worldwide™ Official Training Center that was opened in 2010. Visitwww.KravMagaTraining.com for more information about our school.

"Having never ordered martial arts equipment over the internet before, I was a bit cautious about who to order from. After doing my research I found that Kosh Martial Arts had some of the best prices and were willing to ship to Canada. Unfortunately there was a bit of a mix up with my order, BUT the fine people working at Kosh were able to quickly and efficiently resolve this. All my emails and questions were replayed to with in a timely manner and the customer service was top notch. I know I will continue to do business with them in the future and have already recommenced them to my friends. I strongly recommend Kosh martial arts. There prices, customer service and resolution from start to finish are excellent. Over all 5 out 5."
