Frequently asked questions
What do I wear?
If you've done a martial art before then feel free to wear your existing suit, we only ask that you use a white belt if possible, if you've never done a martial art then wear something loose fitting.
Can I come and watch?
Of course! Please feel free to come along on any class and watch, ask questions, or better still, have a go!
Do I need to be physically fit before I join?
