Recommended equipment list

This list has been compiled not as a shopping list, but to help members to assess what equipment would be most useful.  Aside from a few compulsory items such as license and badge all items can be bought either from your instructor or any other place you can find an item on sale (provided they meet any safety and colour requirements that we have).

There are obviously a lot more karate/martial arts related items that can be found for sale, so this list is intended to focus your investments on items that will be of most use.  If there is any other training equipment, clothing etc that you would be interested in but is not listed, please feel free to discuss with an instructor as to whether it would be of use or for recommendations on the best places for purchase, we may also add it to the list!
