Since the art of east is in widespread throughout the globe martial arts schools are emerging out at brisk pace but businesses which offers martial arts sports related equipment are not yet so active so it is a right time to start up. Before setting up the retail or wholesale business, go around yourself and paper-up the details of any martial arts teaching schools, or general schools or institutes which offer martial art as a co-curriculum activity. If possible try to get into some sort of contract with such bodies which will ensure regular flow of business.
If a contract wont work out find a suitable place which can be easily reachable from such schools or any sports clubs etc because whenever a customer wants to buy any martial arts related equipment the first thought should be your business, you should not allow him to look for options available.

Since some of these sports equipment are very dangerous, a best practice will be to provide a demo of using these equipments by some means may be paper based posters glued on walls around the business place or a commercial video demo running on a big screen visible clearly from every corner.
Ensure that you have ample stock of equipment with you and also make sure that you have products from various makers or different sports brands. Also, it is best practice to have stocks of various price categories to satisfy every customer who steps into your shop for shopping martial arts related equipment as they wont be doing such retail shopping on regular basis. Last but not the least since everyone knows that none of these equipment being purchased are going to be used gently so ensure the best possible quality and care of goods you are offering. Uniforms and guards should be light and flexible. Other equipment like swords should have proper covers to put them when not being used, covers for sparring gears etc. A business which deals in martial arts related sports equipments is no doubt a delicate business which demands great effort before and after establishment, but no doubt when you leave your mark on the surroundings it will shed the sweetest fruits in turn of your efforts and investment into it.
