Uniforms (also called a “Gi”) are recommended but not required. You will avoid minor scrapes and mat burns if you cover your elbows and knees, which the uniforms do nicely. Aikido dojos traditionally use standard, white Judo or Karate-style uniforms. These are available at local sporting goods stores or over the internet. Budovideos.com has good prices and selection, and offers UT Aikido Club members a 10% discount. Use the coupon code UTAIKIDO. You can also use the coupon code for anything else on their website.
