That's true godders, just try and look as though you know what you're doing when you spar. Failing that you could hope he mistakes you for travis foulton and gives you one anyhow.

spenna- been training groundwork for just over a year, but always do no gi, only stuck a gi on twice.
don't really like it, but i've always tried to play my bottom game like BJJ and my top game like wrestling (with subs) so it wasn't too bad with it on.

yeah, i haven't got my blue belt either. i wonder if i have to buy it myself? boo.

I don't like Gi work but I have been doing BJJ with a gi on for 3 years. Do you not get caught with Gi chokes?

I dont really care if i or they have a GI on or not.
As its more or less the same.

Course sweat and loads of grip on the gi are major players. But its generaly the same.

Gi chokes arnt so bad really. I find pushing on the elbow of the arm thats attacking is a effective counter to 90% of them.

Course Royce showed me differently :confused:

Besides Gi chokes are cool to annoy your mates with ;)

no didn't get choked, i find they didn't bother me too much. but then must people were trying them from stupid positions and couldn't get them on right.

the thing i don't like is you can't pul out of subs so easily, you expect your arm to slide out of a triangle or armbar and you're stuck! evil...

i prefer no gi but i suppose gi is quite realistic for street stuff as you'd most likely be wearing a jacket or something.
