    I can see a potential business opportunity: marketing pimped gi's in different colors - chocolate, strawberry, and last but not least green that glows in the dark.

    On another note, a cheap gi will rip open when you grapple with the upmost intensity.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    (Women tend to be more open minded. I've met many women who have had several BJJ experiences, but still don't consider themselves to be BJJ'ers.)

    So I commend you on being so secure.

    I don't think you need to feel uneasy, though. Generally speaking, I don't think people who are openly BJJ are that aggressive. It's the closeted BJJ'ers who tend to be more violent, because they are insescure about their conflicted martial identity.

    So I don't think you have to worry about picking fights. Once you're out to the world as a BJJ'er, and you have the support of the BJJ community, you will probably find that the sense of conflict goes away.

    Of course, I wouldn't now from first hand experience. My friend told me.

    I've heard theres a very good movie on this subject coming out soon. I think it's called Brokeback Mounting. You should check it out.

    Do you guys re-use the same gi each time you grapple? Do you even wash it? Otherwise, you are going to get a gi infection.

    The problem with single weave Gi's is that sperm and STD's can get through the pores and still infect your partner.

    Oh wait.... I think I was a tad bit too obvious.... :shock:

    Dudes, as long as they don't have an instructional video called "Nude BJJ", I think we're all going to be ok...

    Woohoo! Gracies Gone WILD!
