It’s that time again: A reminder of the Academy’s attire policy. The update is a clarification on footwear and is highlighted below.
- Students are asked to wear either a Krav Maga Worldwide shirt, a plain white shirt, or a plain black shirt. Official Krav Maga attire (T-shirts, shorts, pants) is available for purchase at the school. (First-time students may wear any comfortable athletic clothing.) All clothing and equipment must be clean without excessive wear, holes, or tears. See also: “Don’t be a stinky partner”.
- Bring a pair of CLEAN, DRY athletic shoes (no street shoes allowed). This is especially important in rainy weather and the winter. Not only does it keep the mats clean, but it lessens the safety risk of someone slipping. All footwear must be secured to the feet by straps, laces, etc. Slip-on shoes or shoes that are too loose pose a safety risk to you and your training partners.
- ALL jewelry is to be removed (earrings, necklaces, watches, rings, etc.) for your safety and the safety of your training partners.
