Most seminars can be done with little to no equipment. This makes it convenient to conduct seminars and not be tied to a specific location. FDG recommends the body armor at www.predatorarmour.com. FDG feels it provides the best protection for full contact strikes to the most vital targets on the body.
The basics course can be conducted using the FAST Defense Soft Shield Technology with striking pads found at most martial arts suppliers.
Instructors should also have a whistle, knee pads, a pair of sunglasses, and will need to get an instructor polo once certified.
