    One of the first things I do when I've got position on someone is try to pull the gi out of the belt. You can then use it to choke your opponent, control him, and all around make him your bitch. It also is extremely humorous to see the look on your opponent's face when he realizes that he can't escape a shitty guard armbar because you wrapped his arm up twice with his own gi when he wasn't looking.

    You can also pull your own gi loose and use it as a weapon, as shown here:

    It doesn't really hurt my feelings when someone's gi comes loose when we start standing, either. Seems to just give me more control.

    I know it's a silly statment, the idea that people might use clothes and things like jackets against someone in a street situation. I am sure that never happens.

    Luckily BJJ blue belts can walk around in winter wearing speedos thus frusterating any use of clothes against them.

    I like to pull peoples gi's over their heads for the hilarity of it, if Shawn, the instructor, sees however, he laughs and makes me let them have their head back.

    I also like to tie up peoples hands with their belt (or my belt, if it so happens to come off, but it's easier to do with their belt because you can wrap a wrist and pin their hand to their hip easy peasy when you go to pass the guard.

    I've never managed to make anyone tap with a belt choke, but I've wrapped it around peoples necks or foreheads and over their eyes, which is also hilarious.

    Blatant Cornholioing

    Things I have seen in a tournament that caused the ref to pause the match:
    Blatant Corholioing
    The gi coming off
    Sadly, I've never seen anyone garrote a person with their own belt at a tourney
    I just want to say thank you for a legitamte answer

    Most of the street/bar fights I've seen, or been involved in, come down too quickly for any kind of undressing. Trying to take you shirt off is a good way to get caught with your shirt up over your head.

    But if you've got time to dance around posturing, sure, take the shirt off.

    Being blinded isn't the hard part, it's being restricted by your own clothes.

    As to the OP - using the gi seems to be becoming a lost art - higher level judoka tend to wear more fitted gis (there's actually been a rule added because of this), and BJJ gis seem to be cut with less cloth than the equivalent judo sizes. A lot of the old tricks don't work as easily - and pulling the gi up over the head is damn near impossible with a fitted gi.

    I can't think of many scenarios where a street fight which leaves you time to take off your jacket is a fight you don't just walk away from.

    But then again, I might be confusing street fighting with self defence.

    You don't pull it over your head.
    You rip it off, Hulk Hogan style.

    As it relates directly and indirectly to this thread:

    One of the last fistfights I was in (at a movie theatre) I got my hoodie pulled over my head. It took exactly .5 seconds to instinctively extend my arms straight out in front of me and back up to let him pull it completely off.

    As a BJJ player I intuitively recognize how absolutely fucked you are when your gi gets pulled over your head because it happens all the time. In fact I would say as a Judo/BJJ guy I have a huge advantage in these situations because I AM FAMILIAR WITH THEM - much moreso than the average scrub.

    There lies your flaw of your thinking- I avoid this conflict by restricting my line of clothing to spandex only :biggrin:
