    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Gi shorts cleared for BJJ competition?

    I've got a bright shiny new pair of gi shorts that are itching for competition use. Here's the thing, my instructor is fairly certain they're legal to weigh in and compete in, but, well, haven't seen any..... and I totally forgot to ask at the Dallas tourney last weekend >_<

    Anyone in the know, please fill me in.

    What exactly are you ask about? If shiny pants are OK, besides being viado?

    ugh, they're blue- no shining! It's just that they're shorts, you know, no pant past the knee. Are they legal attire?

    You must wear pants in BJJ. You could wear your gi shorts in Submission Wrestling though...

    Shorts would be illegal in gi BJJ competitions, but fine in no-gi.

    I think I'll just take a break while working my spider guard and roll my pants legs up.

    Eduardo "Why'd you stop."

    Me "I was kicked in the head by the guys sparring next to me."

    Eduardo "Ino what happened but i didnt say you could stop."

    Me "Um.. I guess I keep going."

    Eduardo "You dont stop until i say stop, you dont get tired until i say your tired, keep going."
