For rapier practice it is usually best to bring close-toed shoes (I
usually just wear sneakers), long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. You
may not need the long-sleeved shirt, but in case they don't have any
long-sleeved loaner gear you would need that. They may have breast
protectors available for you, should you wish to wear them. For men it
is strongly suggested that an athletic cup be worn, or they would not
be allowed to do any sparring. Beyond that, just bring yourself and
the desire to have a good time! :-) (At least that's how we try to do
it here in Bjornsborg!)

Best of luck and enjoy!
