Whether you’re trying to lose a few inches for bikini season or train up for your Jiu-Jitsu black belt, Warriors has what you need for fitness equipment. The specialty shop on Yonge Street near Isabella carries the top brands for a variety of gear, including Wavemaster and Powerline kickboxing and punching bags and Grizzly fitness accessories like weightlifting dipping belts, lifting straps and head harnesses. They offer boxing gloves in nearly every color of the rainbow, which can be found behind the long counter that lines over half the store on your left. Most weapons are also securely kept behind the counters, including sharp swords, daggers and sais and a line of white oak, laminated bamboo and wax wood staffs for the aspiring stick handler. You can also find period replicas of decorative katanas amongst the dumbbells and protective masks.
Sensei by Book or Tape
Midway on your right of the store you will find a library of instructional videos and books, categorized by the specific martial art or sport subject matter. There are books which explore the finer details of Tai Chi, Karate, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido and more, as well as titles on general health/wellness, wrestling and grappling. The videos cover similar topics as well as a number of interesting self-defense exercises, like fighting from the ground, gun disarming and grappling with a club. Once you’ve trained yourself for competition level, Warriors can set up with your colored belts, available for most martial arts, with several hues in the back and a selection of badges in the glass cabinets to the side.
