Whats Up With The Wrestling Shoes? We’re Doing BJJ!   Leave a comment

This is a big pet peeve of mine!  Wrestling shoes when we are doing jiu jitsu!  What the hell?  We are doing BJJ.  I don’t want to feel your shoe scrape my face when you do certain techniques.  Super lame!  And whats even lamer, most of the guys who wear their gay little wrestling shoes, don’t take off the stupid things when they go to the bathroom. This selfish and thoughtless action tracks urine and fun bacteria onto the mat.

So if you can’t be considerate enough to take them off for your roll partners during training, at least take them off when you go to the bathroom for the sake of the kids class that will be on the mats after you!

BJJ Tip! – Wash That Stinky Gi! Roll Partners Will Be Happy! Plus, Save Money!   Leave a comment

I can’t believe that you have to tell people this stuff, but every once in a while I guess it still has to be said.  Wash that gi!  No one wants to roll with someone who smells like cat piss and whose gi is chuck full of bacteria!

For the consideration of  your roll partners, wash the gi!  If you roll once, you might be able to immediately throw it out in the sun and get another roll out of it.  But, if the thing is soaked and you tie it up in a ball and throw it in  your car overnight to ferment, don’t use it until you wash it again.

If being considerate of others is beyond your grasp, then think about this.  You sweat uric acid and urea acid.  This will break down the material of your gi, if you don’t wash it often!   So, washing your gi will save you money in the long run! This way you can save your money for some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Private Lessons at RocknRoll Brazilian Jiu Jitsu  and Fitness!

Happy training!
