    When you open a business, the point is to make money. sure the school opens to teach bjj, but you can't pay the landlord in technique.

    Most guys open schools so they can make money doing what they love...isn't that what most people want? can't blame these guys who have spent years training - most of them have spent more time training for this than people spend in college for a career.

    This.

    But then I'm another Judo guy primarily. We usually only care about the patch that says "USA"...

    What's the policy on putting the patch on the inside of your gi?

    That sounds like more of a slap in the face than not wearing it at all!

    I don't like patches at all, will never wear one without a requirement and always look for the "cleanest" Gi I can get, but that's probably more of a reaction against guys who seem to wear a patchwork quilt of the dang things to look cool. C'mon guys... it's not NASCAR!
