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 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.

 

When you first start karate, you should wear loose comfortable clothing that allows free movement - a t shirt and tracksuit bottoms would be fine.
