The business assets include a state-of-the-art training facility, a combat sports agency, direct sales and retail division, a comprehensive Internet business infrastructure, marketing division, and publishing department, and charities. The company also owns and operates the iconic Francombat Penthouse located in the top floors of the company property in Hollywood Hills, California.

It all started around 2000 with my website Francombat.com. I just wanted to help people out by sharing combat and nutrition tips. Driven by my passion, what started as just a hobby, went from screen-printed shirts to custom-fitted shirts with a brand that captured everything I believed in. And thus, Francombat was born.
It’s all in the details. From hand picked colors, to comfortable, yet stylish cuts, all Francombat products are tailor made. We spend months perfecting each design to make you feel confident and comfortable in every step you take.
We’re here for you, for our team, and for each other. We are here as a family. We love our Francombat family so much and are beyond grateful that each of you is a part of it.
