I was accused of being "that guy" today, but...
It doesn't make any sense. Someone said after class that my gi was stinky. "Really stinky" were the words.
Which is downright on the limits of absurdity. It came as quite a shock for me.
My mom is a clean freak, and she's the one who (still) does my washing. My gi is washed after practice every single time, and then left to hang in an aerated space. Not to mention I even rotate between gi.
I had my mom smell my gi jacket, and she said it doesn't smell a thing. I even smelled my pants myself down to the crotch. Nope, not a thing.
As for personal hygiene? I retained a little of my mom's OCD and take a shower twice a day, every day. I put antiperspirant before every practice. I even put extra scrub down there so nobody caught in a triangle can complain.
I can understand that some people have body odors that are naturally unpleasant, but to my knowledge I never was one of them. Nobody in the house smokes or does anything with a bad smell. I am throughsly confused.
You were sweaty, maybe you did reek.
Or maybe dudes an ass.
Chaos? Panic?... Disorder??
.........................My work here is done.
Yeah after training. I never thought I was a heavy smeller while sweating though. I always thought I didn't smell much of anything, although your perception of that **** is easily warped.

I don't really want to move on because I don't want the "that guy" reputation when it is entirely undeserved.
Maybe he meant slow down on the fragrances, deodorant, etc.
I only put deodorant. And that alone probably isn't worthy of the "really" before "stinky".

Yes, most people don't think they stink when they do.

I know it sounds weird but I m so sensitive about scents, i never forget how other people smell so after rolling is finished I can tell who was the one who gave me the stink.....(Dude....I have problems havent I....I hope I dont end up smelling the females butt before mating.)
Whatever...that might be it...
Sometimes the things you eat can make you smell real bad. I love beefy onion soup, but if I even think about perspiring after eating it the entire room will smell of onions.
If I have a burrito from Chipotle for lunch, the next day my armpits smell like tacos.
Some people just don't break down the smells when they digest things and they excrete it through their sweat/urine. I also have a condition which may be related called beet-uria, where eating strongly colored vegetables like beets will turn my urine colors. It was horrifying at first, but now that I know I'm not dying of kidney failure it's actually quite a nice change-up at times from the tried-and-true pale-yellow.
I can also write my name in the snow using lots of fun colors.
Anyway, if you eat really flavorful foods that people aren't used to, it doesn't matter how much you wash; you'll smell like it after rolling.
yeah we have this preserved meat called pastirma in Turkey, man there is no delicious thing like that, but you have to accept the fact that you will smell like it for the whole day afterwards. Your pee, your armpit all smell like it.
