The “Dobok” is the obligatory martial arts outfit in Taekwondo. It is adorned by the belt corresponding to the grade of the practitioner. Taekwondo is usually practiced bear-foot.
There are number of suppliers available on the Internet, a sample of which are:
kwon.ch / kwon.fr / tao-distribution.com / mooto.fr / tudo.fr / kimssports.com
The «Dobok» is the appropriate outfit for Taekwondo composed of lightweight ample trousers and top.
There are 3 types of Dobok:
– white collar Dobok for practitioners below the black belt
– red and black collar Dobok, for Poom belt holders (black belt for practitioners who are less than 16 years old).
– black collar Dobok are reserved for black belt holders only.
The size of Dobok is calculated to correspond to the overall height. If you are are 1m73 tall, it is best to take the size above, i.e. 180 cm. Beginners should acquire a Dobok with a white belt, the Club will give them their news belts after successful gradings.
Required protections for training
It is strongly recommended to have at each training the following protections:
– arm guards
– shin guards
– groin guard (men and women)
– mouth guard
– sparring gloves
– foot protectors
Chest protectors and helmets are available at the Club but we recommend you obtain your own helmet for sanitary reasons.
Protections required to attend sparring competitions
All protections must be approved by World Taekwondo to be used in competitions.
The mouth guard must be either white or transparent (no other colour is allowed).
Electronic chest guards (trunk protector and scoring system or TPSS) and electronic helmets are provided by the competition organisers.
You must on the other hand have your own WT approved competition foot protectors.
