Hayabusa Partners With Merging Vets & Players to Safeguard Combat Veterans and athletes with Gear
Hayabusa has adopted the mantra "Protecting Those Who Protect Us" as members of MVP, a life-changing program, will be provided hand wraps and boxing gloves as they learn life lessons through boxing.
Merging Vets & Players sought a partner that not only produces durable and top-quality equipment to protect its members, but also believed in the mission of making people better, healthier and stronger through combat fitness. That synergy is what makes this partnership special on many levels.
Created in 2015 by NFL analyst Jay Glazer and veteran Nate Boyer, MVP is an effort to help combat veterans and former professional athletes transition into civilian life after shedding a uniform most have worn for decades. Based at Unbreakable Performance Center in Hollywood, MVP has affiliates in Atlanta, Chicago, and Las Vegas. The program features weekly fitness sessions, ending with a huddle where members share their experiences. For some, the skills learned in the military or in the sports arena can be difficult to apply outside of the uniform and that's where MVP steps in to provide a support system.
Nate Boyer, a former Green Beret and NFL player, is MVP's co-founder and understands very well the transitional skills needed from both groups.
"Both war fighters and football players need something to fight for once the uniform comes off, and your service to country or time on the field is over," said Boyer, who was stationed in multiple conflict zones while in the U.S. Army. "Without real purpose for the man on your right and left, it can be easy to feel lost."
Hayabusa has quickly become one of the most trusted and innovative equipment and apparel companies in the world of combat fitness and sports. Practitioners rely on Hayabusa's products for safety, comfort, durability and overall quality. From boxing gloves and Jiu-Jitsu gis to shorts and compression apparel, Hayabusa conceives, designs, tests, and produce products that surpass the highest of standards.
"We understand and celebrate the transformative powers combat fitness has for people in all walks of life and supporting MVP was not only an easy decision, but a natural fit," said Ken Clement, Hayabusa CEO. "These men and women are in the fight of their lives and we want to do all we can to support them and help make their transition into everyday, civilian life is easier."
