Venum Australia

Venum’s story is inseparable from Dragon Bleu. In May 2004, from the room of his small suburban apartment in Paris, Franck Dupuis created the first French e-commerce website dedicated to martial arts and combat sports. His vision was to make access to sporting equipment more simple and streamlined than the privately distributed and specialized stores the market was used to.

Franck, a visionary, was among the first in Europe to anticipate a wave forming: the giant that is Mixed Martial Arts today. Deciding to put Dragon Bleu products online, imported from Brazil, success was immediate and overwhelming. However, Brazilian brands in 2004 and 2005 did not show great professionalism and were difficult to work to satisfy the growing needs of the European clientele.
