    Hey guys, I currently roll with a Koral MKM. I love it so far but the pants always seem to come undone and I end up stripping slowly through sparring. I wear an A1 and I'm about 5'6 and 146 so It's hardly too big for me.

    Any suggestions? Maybe I'm not tying it properly (I use the same loop used to tie my shoes) or do I need to replace the drawstring or something?

    Switching to rope did the trick for me.

    I double tie them like I do with my shoes and almost never have a problem. Sometimes it takes a little longer to untie it though.

    Thanks! That's a badass knot, I'll try it later at training and I'll let you guys know how it goes. The moment of getting your hand raised after a match gets ruined when you've got your pants down.
