Suggested Equipment List
The essential equipment you will need in order to practice and to spar at the Club is as follows:
Gi- A white or black Karate suit consisting of trousers and top. Made from cotton and available in various “weights” (the heavier the weight the more durable the Gi). The Gi must have two patches on it. The Club Patch on the left breast, a Style Patch on the right breast.
Belt- Worn around the waist outside the Gi top. The colour indicates the rank of the student. Beginners wear a white belt and advance through green, blue, purple, brown (1st through 3rd KYU) and finally to a black belt. We do not use the Yellow belt.
Sparring Pads- Consisting of a pair of “Shin-Instep” pads, a pair of “Hand-Forearm#8221; pads and either a groin protector for the men or a chest protector for the women.
The following equipment is not essential, but many Karateka have found them useful.
