You will alo need to purchase a plain white 'gi' (Karate suit) with a white belt.

You must have a gi and you must have applied for your licence by your 2nd week of training.

Other Equipment

You will need a 'bo' or staff by your third belt. Smaller people can use a wooden broomstick for this. It must be smooth and without splinters. Please ensure that it has been sanded down. It would be a good idea to coat it with an appropriate varnish too.

Ladies will need appropriate chest protection as they advance up the grades. There are various options option to you and you will find an article on the subject on the club's blog.

Everyone should purchase an appropriate groin guard. I suggest going to outlets and trying one on as we all have different bodies. Find one that is comfortable to wear and that won't restrict your movement or kicking ability.

Training Costs

£10 subscription per week per student aged 8-adult or £5 per week for 5-7 yr olds. This must be paid in cash every Monday.

Family discount: If there are three (or more) of you in a (same household) family training together, the youngest trains free but must have paid for a licence.
If a parent trains with a child, the parent only pays £5 per week.


If you have studied Karate in the past, please bring proof of the grade that you achieved and we will start you off with the same coloured belt or equivalent grade. We're also looking for Dan grades wishing to gain teaching experience. Feel free to make contact for an informal chat. Please arrive 15 minutes before your lesson begins.
