Tips for Judo Classes in Islington 

The proper judo outfit depends on the Judo Club in Islington you choose. Inquire if you will be required to wear a judo suit (called gi) and if so, where they would recommend you to get one. For first-timers at a taster judo class you or your child might be okay with sticking with casual clothing such as jogging bottoms and a tshirt. Make sure to remove all jewelries and other accessories. Long hair should be tied by an elastic band; avoid using metal clips or anything with hard metal studs. Judo also places high importance in hygiene such as keeping nails short, regularly washing uniform, covering cuts or wounds with bandages, showering before class, and avoiding using footwear on the mat. And of course, a bottle of water and towels are always a must have for any workout.
