Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. Is the club affiliated to a National Governing Body?
A. Yes - we are affiliated to NAKMAS
Q. Are there any other costs involved?
A. If you train for more than 4 weeks, you must have a karate licence which is also your insurance. NAKMAS will provide temporary cover for the first four weeks. The cost of a licence is £25 and it is renewable annually.
Q. What should I wear?
A. When you first start karate, you should wear loose comfortable clothing that allows free movement - a t shirt and tracksuit bottoms would be fine. When you are ready, you can buy a karate suit or "gi" as it is called - the traditional white cotton suit.
Karate suits are sized in centimetres so you measure your height in centimetres and this is the size of the suit you need to buy.
