In an effort to keep our carpet clean and in good order, effective February 1st, only wrestling shoes or martial arts shoes will be permitted in class and means no more running or cross trainer shoes. They were just tearing up the carpet and tracking in unnecessary dirt and grime.
Martial arts and wrestling shoes not only will be easier on the carpet, they also help you turn quicker and are less bulky causing less drag in your step.
NOTE: Please change into your martial arts shoes before entering class and do not wear them in from the outdoors.
I prefer wrestling shoes with the split heal and got them at Dick’s Sports for around $40. Here are examples of martial arts shoes you can purchase.
Thank you for your understanding and let me know if you have any questions.
