    That is a BJJ sign? Wow, never knew of that. I saw Penn do it all the time but didn't really notify any relevance.

    (You might feel really dumb for asking this... :wink: ) Hang loose dude! AFAIK, it comes from Hawai'i. Hawaiian surfers liked it a lot; likewise surfers in California saw them and adopted it. Everyone in California wants to be a cool surfer, so they adopted it. Many BJJ schools in the USA began in California, so they started using it too. It is not a BJJ trademark (although it might become one in the future).

    frodo is right, it is just hang loose. Alot of Brazilians like to surf and picked it up from that.

    Chuck Lidell does a verison of it. One hand does that, the other hand in a fist and he crosses his arms.

    Wow, I thought the hang loose sign was universal. Guess that's another dumb american opinion shattered

    I thought so too, but that could just be a result of going to the beach too much and watching too many surf movies.

    In Brazil, BJJ and surfing are two tandem cultures.
