Vanguard pays homage to the works and philosophies of one of the greatest minds of all time...Ludwig Van Beethoven. Despite going deaf in his later years, Beethoven composed the 9th Symphony, widely regarded as the greatest piece of classical music ever compose. Beethoven's 9th Symphony was first performed May 7th, 1824, after he had gone completely deaf. The 9th was inspired by Freedom and Equality and celebrates the brotherhood of all humans. Ode to Beethoven. A true VANGUARD.
Likewise, Vanguard endeavors to create timeless, quality products for the JiuJitsu enthusiast by staying true to its own brand heartbeat and ignoring what others are doing on the outside because alas, "everything else is noise."
