It's that time of year again and we are about to finalize a sparring gear order for our students. Our order is due to be completed no later than Friday December 6th by 12:00pm. While most of our students already have gear there are several new students who are in need of full sets.
For those of you who already have gear please check your gear to make sure each piece is still fitting properly and undamaged, torn gear will need to be replaced. The foot gear should allow about 1/2 inch from the tips of your toes to the innermost piece of foam. The hand gear should fit so that the finger section in the glove sit just at or above the first knuckle of your hand, not below. Head gear is somewhat self explanatory; it should be snug but not too tight, the jawbones on the side of the head should be covered by the side flaps when strapped closed and the forehead piece should sit on the forehead, below the hairline. Also, please check to make sure groin cups and mouth pieces are fitting properly. If your child has lost or outgrown those items, they will need to be replaced before your child can participate in sparring class again.
Once again, our order is due Friday December 6th by 12:00pm.
