You can certainly get one through the club (aka: through the dojo) but any way
you can obtain one is fine with us. Sensei would know if there are any
second-hand ones available at the dojo (there's usually a couple) - I can ask

an old karate gi or something, that will work too.
Glad to hear from you and I look forward to meeting you Friday!
