    First of its only inbetween my little toe and the one next to it, not the kind where your whole foot is affected. Do you still train?

    Stop training. Athlete's Foot is ringworm. Just get some over-the-counter medication, take a week or so off then come back knowing you haven't spread it around your academy.

    It's the same fungus as ringworm stop training until you've got rid. Same goes for jock itch.

    No, I'm leaning towards not training, I just wanna be sure theres no way of training, I love to train so of course I'd love too.

    Can I still train with Staph? Its all over my body but not on my hands or feet so it will be covered by my gi. That should be cool right?

    Athlete's foot = ringworms.

    Do you still train with ringworms?

    I know lots of guys who tape ringworm and train still.

    But I didn't say that, because I have a feeling I would get verbally assaulted for such a suggestion

    You hope you made the right choice? Because missing a couple classes (if you treat it quickly and properly) is going to forever stunt your growth as a grappler? Had you gone and potentially given someone else ringworm, you'd be a giant dick.
