Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

A white martial arts dogi is preferred. If you don’t have one yet then tracksuit bottoms and a loose t-shirt will be ok for a couple of sessions.

If you want to buy a dogi you can find them here: Note: you will want a “bleached” one NOT a natural. Cost around £35.00
