You will not be able to practice karate without having to respect a certain number of traditions that the instructor will bring to your attention. This will make you familiar with the special atmosphere that holds in the dojo and then you will understand the respect you must pay to the people who train there. Karate is performed in a Gi. It is a white karate suit. Most traditional styles of karate wear white as a sign of purity. A Gi is not required until your first grading. Gi's can be bought second hand or new. Loose fitting clothes will be adequate until a Gi is required. All karate is performed in clean bare feet, no shoes are to be worn in the dojo. At the end of the training night the last class washes the tatami (mats)
