The items listed above are examples of what to purchase. This should get you looking in the right direction. We recommend shopping on Amazon for the best prices. When starting out and getting a feel for the sport it is important to keep your costs low. Please look at all the styles however there is no need to pay more than $60.00 for a kids Gi with white belt and $99.00 for an adult Gi with white belt. A white Gi is easy to keep clean as it could be bleached. We also recommend a mouth guard which should not cost you more that $10.00. This is just our recommendation however it is up to you what you want to purchase. Any gym bag will do. We are not sponsored so choose any brand.
