    One of ours too. However, given that he's a scottish plod, I'm not entirely sure what colour it was when he bought it...

    white, blue, black, red... bjj doesn't care.

    judo... judo cares.

    (karate REALLY cares, and kempo cares in a different way, but that's beyond the scope of this forum)

    Get a white that way everyone can see that you wash your gi after everytime you train. If you don't, someone should stomp your head in...........

    Really, ringworm is nasty, don't spread it by not washing your gi everytime. Guys with unwashed gis should be thrown out of class.

    I got a blue one for BJJ to differenciate it from my fine collection of white judogi and regular JJGi's. Plus blue is cooler than white.

    Get a blue one and be cool, like me.
    More human than human is our motto.

    Hey, dandoe123. To my knowledge, Jacare could care less which you wear. We have white belts wearing both colors; choose which you like the best. For now, stick with only white or blue, since those are sometimes the only "allowed" gi colors for tournaments (though it is very rarely enforced outside of teh judo). When is your first class?

    EDIT: Fell free to tell Steven you found the school through Bullshido.

    So who tells Gene LeBell that he can't wear pink?

    Glad this thread was started...by someone else.

    I wear the ninjerific black which looks pretty beaten and faded after a year and tends to not look gross and dingy like a white.

    BUT, I saw this kid at a seminar with a faded brown Koral gi that looked pretty cool but I have not been able to find it online. Koral now has a dark army green color available, might get it, but the brown one was pretty cool looking. Otherwise you really only have white, blue, black, and sometimes red to choose from.

    Hey Locu5,

    My first class will probably be next Monday/Tuesday. My schedule is a bit hectic this week. I haven't decided which school I should begin taking classes at (Downtown vs. Sandy Spring). The downtown school is much closer to me compared to Sandy Spring, but maybe it'll be worth the trip to begin learning from Jacare. Any suggestions?

    I also noted from both schools schedules that there are set beginner's classes. Do you know how these are different from the "normal" classes? Is it just that there are more white/blue belts in the beginner's classes?

    Lastly, do you know anything about the Muay Thai program at Alliance?

    Thanks.

    I was wondering about that, we should start a poll "how often do you wash you gi?" or "how many hours do you wear a gi before washing it?"

    Mine seriously fuckin stinks after practice, I would feel bad wearing it again, but maybe I shouldn't.
