It is important that all students have the correct clothing and equipment in order to practice traditional Japanese Budo safely.
Budokan adopts a "No Gi - No Training" rule.
You will need a white Gi to practise - see below.
You will not be allowed to practice without one.
For the forst month of training Budokan can provide new members with a Gi to wear at no charge.
Just let us know and we will arrange one for all new members without a Gi.
After the first month, new members will be required to buy their own Gi.
This equipment can be ordered through Budokan via Nine Circles - a UK based importer, who we recommend for all equipment for beginners and new students.
We have a discount arrangement in place with them for our members.
