    Why not sue him for disrepecting martial arts and force an apology?

    Not generally. Only time something like that happens is when I'm at a seminar. I'm not going to bother to change if I'm eating something in a cafetaria (sp?) and have to be on the mat again (in gi) in less then half an hour.

    I've never gone shopping in a dobok or something similar, though.

    Pants. Most people don't notice. Yeah in America it is mostly underage 8-14 year old "black Belts" and there parents are so proud. I've had a few outright Sport TKD/Karate/Kung FU challenge me when I ran to the store in Gi pants. So, I stopped.

    Stopped? You should continue, and beat them all up for daring to challenge you.

    I HATE wearing gi anything in public, even just the pants. I wear pajama pants all the time, but never gi stuff.
    sudo make me a sandwich!

    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."

    Usually drive to class wearing the pants (and either rash guard or t-shirt). Top and belt are usually carried in. I don't make any stops between home and class, EVER!

    Gi in public = stupid

    On a side note, it's ok to wear just the pants if you have to. Then you look like an orderly.

    I'd love to but It would be bad to see some big guy beating up on some little kid.
