You basically do not need any equipment to start training in Taekwondo. Once you are sure that you wish to continue to train you will need a uniform (dobok) which are compulsory for official events such as competitions and gradings. It is possible that when you start light contact work you may have to buy some protective equipment such as a head guard, body guard, forearm guard, shin guard and groin guard. This is definitely needed when carrying out contact work of any description. Ask your instructor for more information on equipment.

There are no equipment requirements for the practice of karate, all that is required is space in which to do kata and work with your instructor and partners.

There are schools that put a great deal of focus on competition sparring and require complete sets of pads, cups, and mouth guards.

There are many items that can be used to enhance training, such as heavy bags, makiwara, weights and weapons.

Most places will ask that you wear a dogi, or gi, as a uniform in classes. Many places also have some mats to practice falls, bags to kick and punch.

I do taekwondo also, and I'll answer this question in my case.

In training, we use the kick pad and power trainer for our kicking exercises.

For sparing, you'll need your mouth piece, foot guard, hand gloves, groin guard, knee or shin guards, arm guards, head gear, and the body armor.
