    but in the context of our sport, you can do BJJ with a gi or with nogi, where do you guys think the term 'nogi' came from if not from the BJJ fraternity...

    People need to think outside their own frame of reference and stop imposing how they see the art as the way it should be, some people do bjj for self defence, some for mma, some for the sport aspects and within that some will train in the gi, some not in the gi and some both.

    i guess the ibjjf thought that the easiest way to divide categories based on skill would be to use their exisiting belt system, especially if they assumed thatthe majority of people entering ibjjf jo gi tournies would be existing bjj players at bjj academies. Clearly this issue will hopefully have prompted some discussions within the ibjjf as to what to do with wrestlers/sub wrestler/other grapplers who don't fit into this equation. Will people be given the option to "self certify" their proficiency as in most other nogi competitions.

    Seems to me it would be quite simple to do it this way...

    If people train at a BJJ school then they have a rank then it counts for gi (belt) and nogi (shirt/rashguard). If they just train nogi then they just have rank in that.

    Then for IBJJF nogi comps the guys who have BJJ rank should wear the correct coloured rashguard top to indicate it and guys from non BJJ schools can wear whatever and enter the category they feel is correct for them.

    Anything wrong with that?

    good point - i was indeed looking at this from my own, self idealised perspective which other people won't understand, or even if they do, may not agree with...
