Buying Suits and Equipment

Judo suits, weapons, weapon bags and Aikikai badges for sewing onto Gis can be purchased through the club - talk to the Club Night Official if you want to place an order. Or use the email address below for queries and ordering.

The prices the Club charges are substantially less than from shops.

We stock a limited range from a single supplier in order to offer an affordable entry point for new starters. Orders may need to be paid for in advance.

Popular sizes and weapons are commonly held in stock.

When we buy in stock it is priced up. Prices shown are current - where we have in stock the same item but at a historic lower price - then you get it at this lower price.

We purchase from companies who import and variation occur because of exchange rates. This was particularly noted on orders in late 2017 where an increase of over 30% has occurred.

The items work well for beginners but other suppliers are possible of more expensive items but we don't hold their stock and you would need to cover postage or you can order directly.

Nine Circles is a firm some in the Club have used - we aren't part of their discount scheme but if time isn't a problem we can order via another Club for the discount.
