Hand Mitts

From this Winter’s grading in December, we will be making it club policy for all students to own a pair of hand mitts.  In addition to use in competitions and gradings, they will be regularly used in classes.

They cost £10.00 for a new pair and you can have either red or blue.

Please order through Sensei Peter.
