Reasons We <3 Martial Arts!

At Century, we love martial arts. It’s a plain and simple fact. How can you not love them when you’re immersed in them every day, not just in training but in the behind-the-scenes work that goes on at the world’s leading martial arts equipment supplier? So, because it’s Valentine’s Day, I wanted to take a moment to celebrate that love of the arts and share it!

8 Amazing, Actually True Facts about Chuck Norris

  When I was a sophomore in college, my roommate Natalie had a poster: “15 Chuck Norris Facts.” She hung it in the living room, and among the four of us roommates, it was probably the best-read piece of literature in the apartment. “Chuck Norris was once bitten by a cobra.

Can I Go Two Months Without Sugar?

  Hi. My name is Sarah, and I am addicted to sugar. I adore the sweet stuff in any form it takes: cookies, candy, lattes swirled with caramel syrup and cupcakes swirled with icing.
