For newcomers, simple, light and comfortable training clothes are advised. These can be a t-shirt and jogging bottoms or shorts. Most of the time we train barefoot, so there is no need for any special footwear or socks.
A training suit (GI) can be ordered through your Chief Instructor. GI & Belt with club logo must be worn when attending training sessions at the dojo. All GI’s must be maintained to a good standard and for hygiene purposes kept clean and laundered.
Only official Hakudakan club GI and belts can be worn in the dojo unless you are granted special permission. You can wear a t-shirt under your GI top (this is a must for females) however this t-shirt should be a dark colour (preferably black) and have no visible motifs.
For safety, you must not wear any kind of jewellery when training. If you have body piercings or other jewellery that cannot be easily removed, then you must tape them securely to your skin (or cover with a plaster) to avoid possible injury. Finger and toe nails must always be kept short.
