A uniform (dobohk) is purchased through the instructor. You may purchase one at any time. Do not wear uniforms with logos or patches from other schools. Instead wear loose fitting, modest clothing until a uniform is purchased. (They are not required until the second month. This is so you have a chance to decide if martial arts is right for you.)
Partial uniforms are not allowed. (At Family Tang Soo Do, we occasionally allow informal uniforms — dobohk pants and FTSD rank T-shirts. We will announce any informal uniform nights.)
Do not wear your dobohk outside of the studio (dojang). Try not eat in your dobohk, if you must eat at an all-day event or test, take care that you do not get any food on it. Dobohks must be kept clean looking and smelling.
There is a traditional way to fold your dobohk and the only other exception is to transport it on a hanger or in a garment bag if you are traveling to an event.
Cross the left lapel over the top and smooth.
Then fold entire dobohk in half, again long-ways.
Fold your belt in half (this helps crease the belt so you always know where the middle is and you can dress down faster) then fold it over using the same method to tie your belt in class.
You should finish with a nice handle to to carry or hang your dohbok.
