MMA Textiles has successfully completed the Made in USA Certified proprietary audit process making it the first U.S. manufacturer of Mixed Martial Arts clothing & gear to be granted license to use the Made in USA Certified Seal.

MMA Textiles was founded in 2005, by David Pate a highly decorated Disabled war veteran, honorably discharged in 2001 as a USAF Senior Airmen and Civil Engineer. Pate was deployed for Gulf War I in Operation Desert Storm, assisted in humanitarian earthquake relief in Turkey in 1999 and served in Bosnia and Iraq wars.

Upon returning to civilian life disabled, ever the warrior/survivor, Pate took up the disciplined practice of Mixed Martial Arts for peace and balance and credits the practice of Mixed Martial Arts as his savior. Pate reclaimed his life and found his true passion through his love of the sport.

With no textile or sewing experience, Pate's passion for victory make his company a thriving business in helping, training and employing fellow Veterans. Pate works closely with the charity, Stand Down in West Palm Beach that houses homeless Veterans and their families, feeds them and places them in jobs.

MMA Textiles is owned and operated by U.S. War Veterans and Heroes. All products are proudly Made in the USA by American workers. Made in USA Certified proudly certifies their line of Mixed Martial Arts Clothing and commend them for the exemplary commitment to America and the revitalization of the U.S. economy.

MMA Textiles has a backlog of orders, needs workers and funding. Pate has been working with Balanced Fund-Raising (www.balancedfundraising.org) to raise money to hire and train more Veterans and grow his business.

Co-Founder and President, Julie Reiser called MMA Textiles "a true American company built by American War Heroes who deserve our support."
