Turtle Press

was founded in 1989 with the publication of our first book Teaching: The Way of the Master. At that time, there were no materials designed specifically to educate martial arts instructors on the methods and strategies of teaching. Turned down by all of the major martial arts publishers as being too radical or revealing too much information, this book spawned a revolution in the martial arts world. Prior to 1990 there was nowhere for martial arts instructors to turn for information on teaching. Today there are plentiful resources. Turtle Press is proud to have led the martial arts world in a bold new direction, improving the quality of instruction available to students worldwide. Even today, in its expanded second edition, Teaching Martial Arts is one of our top selling titles, educating a new generation of instructors. Looking toward the future, Turtle Press is committed to continue bringing you the very best in martial arts educational material. With over 20 new video titles, several ground breaking books and a major web site innovation planned for the near future, we are excited about the potential for opening new vistas in the martial arts. We hope you will join us in celebrating the diversity of our martial arts heritage. features the world's top masters, fighters and experts and includes the world's largest selection of video titles.

Century - The world's largest martial art supplier


In 1976 Century started as Century Martial Art Supply making martial art uniforms 'that were designed to fit the average American' in its founder's garage. Today Century is recognized as the largest supplier of martial arts products in the world and as a leader in 'total fitness' products.

In 2000 Century Incorporated continues to deliver new products and services to the martial arts industry while expanding into markets such as yoga, strength training, and boxing. The company has long since moved out of the founder's garage and now operates out of a facility that contains a 200,000 square feet manufacturing plant, over 500,000 square feet of state of the art distribution capacity, a 50 person Call Center, and its corporate headquarters.

Century remains a privately held company that continues to consistently grow at a double digit pace. By staying focused on the customer and the markets we serve Century has become not just the largest martial arts supplier but also the leading manufacturer of training bags and now has its sights set on the strength training market with the recent introduction of its new line of weight benches. Recently Century became the exclusive distributor of Tae Bo tapes and equipment as well as handling Tae Bo customer service calls in its Call Center.
