What do I need?

In order to practice in the dojo you must wear a gi, or a karate uniform. A gi can be provided for you at the equipment rental counter in the basement of the IMA. If you plan to join the club we ask that you purchase your own gi. We also ask that club members purchase "Karate-Do Kyohan." Written by Master Gichin Funakoshi, it is an invaluable book for our style, outlining not only all 19 kata in detail but fundamental aspects of karate, applications, and philosophies on training. Information on how to purchase the necessary items can be found on the Equipment page.
