What do I need to wear?

Initially you can wear any loose and comfortable clothing eg jogging tops and bottoms, however, suits are available to purchase from the club.

You will need to wear appropriate footwear when walking from the changing room to the practice area (the mat). Slippers, sandals or flip-flops are suitable. Zoris (traditional straw ‘slippers’) can be bought from the Club.

Gradings

All martial arts have a grading system, usually indicated by wearing coloured belts. Progression through the grades is voluntary, although most people choose to take gradings. 

In Aikido, beginners start with a white belt and then move through yellow, orange, green, blue, brown and black belts.
