"For a generation of women taught to play (and fight) with that ethic in mind, perhaps a line of clothes that recognizes our abilities and celebrates the fight—the fights we wage to better ourselves and to be taken seriously as athletes—may be one that succeeds in meeting women where they are, and who they are fighting to become."
"Le and the Society Nine team spent the better part of 2014 hosting focus groups of women, ranging from fitness moms to professional fighters, to measure their hand sizes - width, length and the dimensions of their closed fists - and also to ask what they loved and hated in the market.
"That's how we ultimately developed our gloves to be different from everybody else's- we really started with putting women first," the fighter said."
"Le likes to call it the “spark.” It’s the spark that inspires a woman to give mixed martial arts a try or the spark the motivates any woman to get up and try everyday, no matter what life throws at her. Le doesn’t want a sporting company that, like so many others, is marketing towards how a woman looks, but one that ensures that she is fulfilled on the inside.
No matter what your spark is, whether it’s in the world of mixed martial arts or boxing, Le hopes all women remember to “be patient with yourself. Remember why you’re doing it; it could be for self-confidence, it could be to become physically fit. Just remember that this should only be for you. Harness that power for yourself.”"
“We’re not just a boxing glove company,” Le says. “We’ve galvanized the community of fierce women that say we deserve better for our athleticism. They’re galvanized under the idea that there’s a lot more to power than physique.”
