When choosing a martial art supplier, make sure you consider the following. First of all, write down all your specific needs, from uniforms to any protective gear or instructional information you may need. You may want to create a budget, ask your martial arts instructor about any detailed supply demands, and measure your body to make sure you have all the initial information you need.

Once this is done, you are ready to shop. Sometimes it is a good idea to do a bit of research on a number of suppliers in the area, or go online and find one Internet martial arts equipment shop that can handle all your needs. This is why it is best to have a pre-written list so that all your gear can be bought in one location, as opposed to several that require different shipping and handling rates.

What to Ask a Martial Art Supplier

Once you have found a good source to purchase your equipment from, ask the supplier regarding how to size your uniforms and gear (or check to see if they have a measure vs. size chart on the website). Keep an eye out for sales, and ask the martial art supplier if he or she is planning on any in the future. You can then budget for future gifts for martial arts students or any gear that you are planning on buying for yourself.

If you are ordering online, check to see what shipping and handling charges will be added to the total, as well as when and how the items will be shipped to you. You should also be able to contact the supplier about any unique equipment you are having difficulty finding, as he or she may be able to special order items for you. It is the supplier's job to make sure you, the customer, have all the information and support you need.
