Gi - (uniforms)
A gi is the traditional karate training uniform. There is no obligation to purchase a uniform at any point and we recommend that you do not purchase a gi in your first semester. The first semester is usually a trial period for most students, and they do not want to commit to anything until a full semester is complete. If you decide to purchase a gi, we can provide one at a discounted rate.
