How To Buy Karate Equipment

Jun 18, 2008
If you want to do learn karate you are going to need the proper equipment. If you are starting out, not all karate equipment that is for sale is necessary to have. But if you are a veteran student of karate there is a wide variety of practice equipment that can help you tremendously in your training.

Make a List of the Karate Equipment You Need

First you have to consider what specific type of karate you are going to be practicing, and then find out from there which specific pieces of karate equipment you are going to need. In most cases karate mats and karate belts are a must. Then from there it just depends on your needs.

Prior To Buying Karate Equipment

Before you head out, you should use your list to help you set out a sort of budget. This way you will have an idea of what you can spend and thus will be less likely to end up going overboard and spending more than you need to. Although you can generally find fairly inexpensive karate equipment, it is important to remember not to get carried away and buy things you really won't use that much.

Where to Buy

There are actually quite a few different companies that offer karate equipment. You should be able to find physical store locations in your area or you can also go online to find their equipment.

How Do I Tell if it is a Good Company?

A good company should offer a lengthy list of equipment categories, including:
* Uniforms and belts
* Sparring and boxing gear
* Martial arts weapons
* Training gear
* Martial arts videos
* Accessories
* Martial arts footwear etc.

A good company will also have been around for a number of years. If they have been in the karate business for a while they probably haven't upset too many customers. You can also look for customer reviews online.

There are often many reviews of certain companies and their equipment. You always can also ask your karate instructor where they get their equipment. If they run a good studio chances are they know how to get good equipment.

Many people will often buy all kinds of weapons and sparring equipment and then hardly use them. That ends up being a waste of money. If you are a new student to karate your instructor will probably be happy to help you find the right equipment.
