About us

Yes. We are back!

In 2019 we had the opportunity to take over a large batch of beautiful martial arts articles from the founder’s next of kin. One thing was clear; these articles were previously brought to the market with passion. We learned that Ichiban MAE is not just a brand, but the life’s work of Shihan Alain Breugelmans founded in 2007. We took a year to deepen our knowledge of the brand. We spoke with people around the world and created a team of enthusiastic people. It was clear to everyone: Ichiban MAE had to come back. With over 250 unique articles and a stock of 60,000 pieces from the original Ichiban MAE collection, we started selling again in the autumn of 2020.

From the head office in Breda, not far from where the brand originated in 2007, Ichiban MAE is continued according to the vision of Shihan Alain Breugelmans. We continue to stand for fair prices, high quality products and personal attention for our partners and customers.
