Equipment

So, what equipment do you need to start training?

For your first lesson you just need to wear something fairly loose that will allow you a wide range of movement. E.g. t-shirt and shorts, or a track-suit. You can either train in bare feet, or wear flat-soled "budo" shoes.

If you decide that you want to continue to train you will need a white karate suit, or Gi. A free Gi will be provided for you when you join the club.

Additional protective equipment is required when sparring. Advice will be given during lessons.

Protective equipment and additional Gis are available through the club, to members, at very good rates.
