Generally speaking, you should wear your regular clothing for self-defence training, this way you'll fully appreciate just how difficult it can be to implement defensive reactions and offence tactics wearing tight fitting uncomfortable clothing. Do you think you'll only get attacked when you are wearing your workout clothes on the way to the gym? No, it will most likely come at the very worst possible time, late at night after a long day at work with the most ill appropriate clothing to fight your way to safety.
So here's our recommended list of ideal clothing for self-defence training.
Self-defence should not be something you do once or twice per week for an hour and forget about, nor should your clothing choice be confused with bare feet martial arts training while wearing a gee. You're not going to be barefoot in the street wearing your bathroom robe now are you?
So keep it real and keep it relaxed.
Until next time, train hard, stay safe and train for REALITY SELF DEFENCE.
