Updates from IMAC (Irish Martial Arts Commission)

Participants are advised to wear non-porous footwear at class (eg swimming socks or gymnastics socks). If socks are being used, the following practical observations should be considered: students are advised to sanitize their hands and feet prior to putting in the socks before training. Appropriate washing of socks after session (60 degree temperature). If sparring possibly use different socks for different sparring partners (however this may not be practical). If socks are being used as a form of PPE, guidance on removing them and putting them on should be provided (similar to masks and gloves).
