Screen icon and legendary Martial Artist SHO KOSUGI has joined forces with AEW wrestling Superstars “The Lucha Brothers” to create his official apparel and merchandise line

AEW (All Elite Wrestling) superstars the Lucha Brothers, “Penta el Zero Miedo” and “Rey Fenix” created “Republic of Lucha”, the world’s only Lucha Libre-themed store, art gallery and event space in 2021 to critical acclaim. Their wildly successful endeavor has been named “Best Small Business” two years in a row by the LA Times and has just been nominated for its 3rd consecutive award, among many other accolades including coverage by NPR, NBC, the LA Times and PBS.

The Brothers, lifelong fans of action cinema, approached Mr Kosugi to propose the idea of collaborating on an exclusive apparel and merchandise line similar to their Republic of Lucha concept, but now centered 100% on Sho Kosugi’s iconic status and image as one of the foremost action stars of the 80’s and the definitive figure that spearheaded the “Ninja Craze” that spawned millions of fans across the globe and continues to this day.

Official merchandise including t-shirts, jackets, stickers and more will reflect on Sho Kosugi’s legendary career including his iconic ninja posters, movies, Martial Arts achievements and new original designs. Republic of Lucha will host several pop ups starting in early Summer where “Sho Kosugi’s Republic of Ninja” will take over their entire 4,000 sq ft space in South Pasadena, California. These pop ups will feature exclusive memorabilia exhibits from Mr Kosugi’s personal collection, including the ability to acquire artifacts that were featured in some of his best known movies, as well as Meet & Greets with the public and hosting “Ninja Movie Nights” that will feature some of the iconic action star’s best-known films, with the screen legend in attendance.
