  1. for the love of god.. wash your shit. everytime you take it off.. wash your shit.

    if you smell like amonia.. wash your shit. if it's still damp from tuesday and you're putting it on for thursday.. wash your shit.

    i dont want to tap because i pulled guard on the big dude with toxic gi funk and now cannot breathe.. wash your shit.

    Nice excuse for tapping...


    I was mine on Sundays usually as I wrestle on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday but sometimes more. Mine is nice and damp right now, I can't wait to put it on this weekend...I love old sweat.
     
  3. lol, i didnt tap to the funk but it can get real tempting.

    when you get heel hooked, or a rough knee in the groin from passing, dont wonder why.

    wash your shit, you slob.

    Too expensive to wash the gi everyday...

    I do understand your point though.

    Wash your Gi or dont come in. I know they are expensive but you need several Gi's if you are training alot. Nothing like some time in the sun for a Gi to loose its funk (after you wash it!)
    Guys come into the school with funky shit, i send em home.

    I don't get people who dont wash the gi. Maybe because it doesnt go damp & dark they dont seem the sweat. What makes me really ill, these people probably dont wash their hands or bodies after BJJ, just rush home & grab a bite to eat. er..not only is your sweat in your mouth but everyone else you touched. Ergh, wash you gi you dirty buggers who dont.

    There was & a supposedly returning bloke at my club who arrived with a damp gi, he said he didnt have time to dry it & it was actually drenched, I gave it a quick feel when he joked about it. It stunk & my guess is he didnt wash it. I excused myself to the toilet, washed my hands & returned. When I returned he offered to spar, I refused & went with a more experience person who raped me me with armbars. I'd honestly prefer being tossed around than roll with that smelly piece of ...

    Oh here is the Gi funk story that will beat all!!

    This week our Instructor/school owner went on vacation with his family. I covered for him and taught the classes on Tues. evening. Well this guy comes in to sign up, tells me that he already spoke to our Instructor, checked out an earlier class, and was ready to start as a full time student. I told him that the head hancho was out of town until Friday, but he was welcome to stay for class.

    After warm ups I start showing some technique and I can smell that someone is wearing "STANK ASS GI!!" About half way through the techniques I give a little speech to the whole class about Gi cleanliness because I wasn't sure who was sportin' the funk.

    Ok fast forward.....the guys are now sparring and I'm walking around giving pointers and stuff. I walk up to where this new guy is sparring and I notice that this fucker has SHIT STAINS ON HIS GI!!!!!! I'm talking big fucking skid marks on the ass crack of his Gi. I swear I almost threw up in my mouth a little bit. After the round was over I handed the stopwatch to another guy so I could spar. This new guy was looking at me like he was going to ask me if I wanted to roll. Before he could say anything I called over to one of our larger whitebelts, pointed at the new guy and said "Hey Javy, roll with this new guy". the fuck if I'm getting anywhere near those shit stains!!

    Today I will talk to our Instructor about this guy and let him decide what to do about the situation.


    WASH YOUR GI AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN GUYS. DURING THE WEEK HANG IT UP TO DRY AFTER USE AND SPRAY IT REAL GOOD WITH SOME FEBREEZE.

    Thank you and have a nice day!!

    Damn that is fkd up! You and the instructor shoudl just take the dude aside and in a constructive manner tell him he needs to be more fastidious about cleaning his gi. I cant imagine that dude is going in there and rolling, knowing and not caring that he has the green stripes!

    I can't picture gi pant with skid marks. I how can that happen unless you spar without underwear,... eeuuuh!

    Anyway, I always have a deodorant body spray in my gym bag that I use when I'm in class. I spray it on every part of my body, on my underwear, on my gi pants and even on the lapels of my gi.

    I've also seen some cats with shitstains and some yellow stains on their gi's. Rolling with people like that makes me feel like I should've stayed home and do something else. Sometimes I think people feel it's a machismo thing to do. This thread is making me feel really sick.. I shall take a bath to clense myself of these thoughts.

    Damn!! The more responses I read, the more stupid I feel about not kicking the guy out right on the spot. I don't even know what the hell I was thinking.
