EQUIPMENT

Doboks:

Doboks (the Tae Kwan Do uniform) must be ordered through the Club, unless you have a Dobok from prior training. Dobok ordering forms will be made available in class. We prefer the ITF style Dobok with a zipper in front.

Footware:

For the Tae Kwon Do classes bare feet are the norm. This is mainly because the patterns and techniques include 180 and 360 twists, where the extra grip provided by soled trainers puts undue stress on ankle and knee joints.

Boxing classes are usually with trainers or boxing shoes.

It is a condition of our insurance cover that the following standards apply. Students are responsible for ensuring that they are adequately protected for training and sparring.
