This benefits both beginners and those who have practiced longer; when those that teach is forced to reflect on their own technique. Some parts of the training, however, is divided into groups where all get to practice the techniques for their own level.
No, not to begin with. It is good enough to train in a regular shirt and a pair of tracksuit pants or shorts. When you have practiced a while, you may want to purchase a Dogi and get some personal protection, such as gloves, gum shield and jockstrap . Ask the instructor for help when you feel you want to buy stuff.
For adults , we have instructor-led training twice a week and one open training. The children practice once a week. One need not to attend every training, the main thing is that you exercise regularly. The more you practice , the more progress you can see in your training , both physically and technically.
