Eljan Sports is the one-stop shop of all products distributed by Duckten Corporation. Duckten Corporation is a corporation primarily engaged in the importation and retailing of sports equipment, uniforms and accessories.
The company is known in the martial arts market for the brand KIX, the Official Taekwondo Equipment of the Philippine Taekwondo Association. It has reinvented itself into a design and retailing company branching out to other sports-related products not associated with Taekwondo. Several years ago, it launched two other brands namely, NOA Watergear (for water sports, recreation, and rescue) and STIX Arnis.
Currently, Duckten Corporation has recently expanded to include more brands – Rubber Mats and Power Trainer – to complement other sports and training needs.
Eljan Sports is not only dedicated to providing an avenue where sports products and equipment can be purchased conveniently. More importantly, Eljan Sports is dedicated to the development and growth of sports.
At its inception, our first brand KIX Taekwondo was created due to the need for high quality Taekwondo equipment for the growing Taekwondo community. A Taekwondo instructor saw the need for good equipment in order to promote the safe practice of the sport, and thus started making equipment with some of his fellow Taekwondo jins. With the support of the Philippine Taekwondo Association for the promotion of providing the needed equipment for the practice of the sport, KIX Taekwondo grew alongside the development of Taekwondo.
Similarly, in the creation of STIX Arnis and NOA Watergear, Duckten Corporation wanted to provide support to activities of great importance in the Philippines: Arnis, the Philippines' national sport, and water sports, recreation, and rescue. Arnis was just recently declared as a national sport, and Duckten Corporation thought that the Philippines' very own national sport deserved to be provided with high quality equipment and uniforms through STIX Arnis. Water sports and recreation are one of the main attractions in the Philippines as an archipelagic nation, and with NOA Watergear, Duckten Corporation wanted these activities to be as fun and safe as possible.
Aside from being our retail store for our products, Eljan Sports wants to promote, support, and develop sports. It seeks to reach its goals in the following ways:
