Our Values

When it comes to our values, we believe in being transparent and telling it like it is.

We've got a zero-tolerance policy for any type of discrimination, whether it's based on race, gender, sexual orientation, or ability.

When it comes to our values, we believe in being transparent and telling it like it is. We don't just talk the talk - we walk the walk!  We're big supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement, LGBTQIA+ rights, indigenous rights, sex workers, and equal opportunities for everyone. If you ever feel like we're not living up to these values, please let us know. We want to make sure that everyone feels welcome and we're always looking for ways to improve.

We're here to close that gap, and make our mark on the mat.

We're Rewriting History

Although today there are a growing number of women in martial arts, the gym is still a relatively new space for us. The first women's fight in the UFC was in 2013, and they launched in 1993. The first women's Olympic boxing match was in 2012, and the first men's match was in 1905. 

It took them 108 YEARS to let women box in the Olympics. While it's becoming more acceptable for women to enter male-dominated martial arts gyms, there is still an alarming gap when it comes to activewear made specifically for women in martial arts.

Where we're heading

We know that the textile industry is inherently wasteful and detrimental to the environment. In reconciling with this, we are doing everything in our power to make as small an impact as possible. 

We aim to make big, bold moves with our production, to a point where circularity and sustainability are embedded into every stage of the business - from materials, to labour, packaging, shipping and beyond. We know that we aren’t perfect, but we're working to make the changes we can to improve our environmental and social impact. 

If you know of any innovative solutions, materials or manufacturers that are making a positive impact that you think we should know about, shoot us an email at christina@wickedrose.com and let us know. We are always trying to improve our business and we welcome any helping hands along the way!

The best fit is always the right fit. Let’s get started on finding yours.
