Skill and drills (and some fighting)-body armour.
You need this as soon as you start the sparring in the advanced classes.
But the process often goes like this..
So we are borrowing academy body armor, and doing the skills and fighting exercises. Some times you will get one of the academy's which fits your right other times you will not, and as the class grows, academy kit is given out to newwer students first.
But you really need to get your own kit.
Modern body armor is easy on which allows for rapid changing and more independence.
WE WILL ONLY ALLOW THE USE OF BODY ARMOUR SUPPLIED THROUGH THE ACADEMY.
