    Old gi tops.

    Does anyone know of any uses for old gi tops aka uwagi. For the
    pants, zubon, I just turn them into shorts.

    Hillary Williams works with a charity that teaches jiu jitsu to kids in the favelas. You may want to reach out to her and find out when she and Westside MMA in Little Rock are sending another load of tops to Brazil. Or if you have something local that might be another good alternative.

    Cut off the sleeves and use them as handles for pullups.

    They make the best pajamas (the bottoms, not the tops).

    you don't even have to cut the sleeves, you can drape them over a bar and do pull-ups that way.

    Absolutey. But if you cut them off they are easy to throw on other machines as well like seated row or lat pulldown.

    You can also shrink it in the dryer, dye it pink and dress your GF up like Kyra gracie.

    I would rather try a gender swapped Ryu. But must find a girlfriend first.
