WHAT TO WEAR
No specialised clothing required; however, we recommend you wear a loose fitting t-shirt, shorts and a pair of supportive training shoes. Don’t forget some warmer over clothes for the journey home. Gum shield,hand wraps & skipping rope are a minimum requirement to train.
IMPORTANT – Bring a drink in a spill proof bottle
All the equipment required including, gloves and head guards are available for use within the club free of charge. However those who progress to full contact sparring must wear a gum-shield.
