Equipment and resources
After training for one month it is recommended each student have the following equipment:
- mouth guard (preferably dentist fitted)
- focus mitts
- punching gloves – 12 oz or better.
- uniform (White) wrap around or V-neck style. If the uniform is of lighter material it is a good idea to reinforce the stitching. Black trim is reserved for instructors.

I have tried other martial arts that try to teach students to catch flying punches and pull fancy moves but they are ultimately impractical for the real world. That’s why I keep coming back to Northside Hapkido. It teaches real techniques for the real world.
