Ancient combat sports themed athletic apparel and casual wear. All designs handcrafted.
The original heel hook hoodie features our handcrafted design of submission grappler clamping onto an exposed heel, moments away from submitting his opponent with the feared heel hook submission. The ancient Greek phrase "τον προσπαλαιοντα τη πτερνη tra" translates to "one who wrestles with the heel" and is one of the earliest known mentions in ancient literature of an athlete who specializes in heel hooks.
