FIST JOINS IN ON THE #KaiFight

By #FISTARMY, SMASH FORTH

FIST Handwear is proud to announce the release of the #KaiFight77 Red Label Glove, with every dollar made from the sales being donated to Kai to aid in his recovery.

Our FIST Army brother Kai Sakakibara went down in a big way at the BMX World Cup in February. He spent weeks in a coma and has just recently been released from Hospital. Kai is making amazing progress, but still has a long road ahead of him.

With help from FIST’s great friend and talented tattoo artist Carly Kawaii, these gloves were created to raise money to aid in Kai’s Fight in any way we can.

After an overwhelming amount of support, in just one week, almost one hundred pairs of the #KaiFight77 gloves were sold and FIST were able to send Kai over $4000. With more gloves still available online, this amount will continue to grow.

Launched on Kai’s Birthday, these gloves are available in both youth and adult sizes and are currently an Australian exclusive, but will be available globally as a part of our next chapter of designs towards the end of the year.

FIST Handwear would like to thank everyone for the amazing show of support for Kai, and with limited stock still available, we’d love you to jump online and grab a pair while stock lasts.
