What Should I Wear?


Workout-style clothing that leaves your ankles and wrist visible is best. We train in bare feet. Our floor is matted, so if you need to wear special shoes we ask they be non-scuffing indoor footware and used only for karate.


Women who continue training will be encouraged by buy a karate uniform (called a "gi"), which are available at our school. Of course, you are welcome to buy and wear a gi whenever you'd like.
