    Quick question about the Trials next weekend...

    For the stick sparring and weapons form uniform requirement, I note that the rules for the Can/Am Border Battle requires a traditional Karate uniform. Does that hold true also for the Trials?

    The club I train at usually does not train in or wear Karate uniforms. We tend to train in appropriate, matching athletic pants and school identifying t-shirt without a rank identifying belt. Is this allowed in this competition? I haven't even been awarded a belt, so I'm not sure what to wear.

    Just want to find out in advance so I'm not turned away at the door for any improper uniform stuff.

    Don't worry about it. Wear what you would normally wear. Looking forward to seeing you at the trials.
