We have had mixed experiences with Martial Arts Mart ( They are part of Tiger Claws,
so the experience was all the more disappointing. We ordered some belts, a belt rack and embroidery on one belt.
The belt rack was of really shoddy construction - surprising as it had the Tiger Claw logo inscribed. Three of four
dowels had to have endpieces sanded down for length so the top and bottom were level; six of eight pegs did not
fit and had to be sanded or shimmed; and improper packing caused the bubblewrap grid to imprint into the
wood base. One belt was missing, which was soon cleared up with a phone call. The embroidery took 10 weeks
and 18 calls. After the second belt with someone else's name arrived we gave up. Janae Sanwa, if you are out
there, we have your belt. Steven B. Johnson, we mailed yours back to Martial Arts Mart - we hope you got it.
