Century Martial Arts

Great news for martial arts fans and practitioners in the Dallas-Fort Worth area: a new Century Martial Arts Showroom is coming to your area!

The Gameness Sports Headquarters showroom has expanded to include a Century section. Gameness became a division of Century in 2018, and our two brands have been working together to grow, improve, and serve a wider variety of martial artists ever since!

The new Century-Gameness Showroom is over 6,000 sq. ft., including both the shopping area itself and inventory warehouse. In addition to the great Gameness gear you know and love (like high-quality gis, rash guards, fight shorts, and belts), the Showroom now carries Century gear! This includes training bags, like the ever-popular Body Opponent Bag (BOB); the original freestanding bag, the Wavemaster and all its many variations; and gear for sport and traditional karate, self-defense training, and all manner of other martial arts!

Let's be honest: Online shopping is great. But sometimes, you want to be able to shop in person – to try on that new uniform, browse store-only sales, feel how that bo or nunchaku fits in your hand before you buy it and take it home. And, of course, nothing beats in-person customer service!

"Our staff are experts in these processes and can help you make the best selection for your dojo (or personal training)," boasts store manager Tommy Chapa.


Yep, the store is geared both towards school owners and individual martial artists! If you have a wholesale account with Century or Gameness and you're in the area, drop by the new showroom to set up your custom orders. You can pick out the perfect new uniforms to have embroidered, or pick out the sparring gear color that will really make you screen-printed logo pop.

Curious to know more? Stop by! The address is 1545 Capital Drive, Suite 103, Carrollton, TX, 75006, or you can give the showroom a call at (888) 405-6056.

Hours: Mon-Fri, 9:00 AM – 5:30 PM

When The Fast and the Furious (2001) sped into the psyche's of illegal street racing enthusiasts, with a penchant for danger and the psychotic insanity of arrant automotive adventure, the brusque bearish, quasi-hero rebel, Dominic "Dom" Toretto was caustic yet salvationally portrayed with the power of a train using a Vin Diesel engine.

Sean Strickland turned in a solid, workman-like performance to extend his UFC win streak to five defeating Uriah Hall by unanimous decision in the main event of UFC on ESPN 28 Saturday in Las Vegas. The pair had been in the cage as training partners before but, when it counted, Strickland had the edge with the harder punches and the superior clinch and ground games.

Hall looked like he had trouble getting off all evening, occasionally showing flashes of his exciting stand up skills but at other times seeming a little lackluster. Strickland dominated much of the middleweight bout with solid jabs and thudding overhand rights. Whenever his opponent did seek to make something happen, Strickland seemed largely unfazed. By the end of the fight he appeared to be walking through Hall's punches and simply shoving Hall back against the fence to control the action.
