What do I wear to my first class?
Wear comfortable clothes that are easy to run around in (not jeans) :
gym clothes, sweats and a t-shirt, yoga pants...
When do I get a uniform?
After your free trial classes and you decide to join and keep learning karate.
Do I have to wear the uniform?
Usually yes, but if you have sensory issues with it, then just wearing your belt with your own clothes is fine.
