    I was wondering if any of you guys here shaved your legs? I do and a few guys in my gym told me it was gay. When my instructor heard me talking about it he called me over and told me not to discuss this stuff in the gym or I'd have to leave. Is this normal? He's given me dirty looks the past few days.

    I think he's mad because I've trained wrestling and I beat one of his favourite purples. I'm just a two stripe blue mind you. I've been training almost 2.5 years.

    Does anyone else's instructor act like this? Does anyone else here shave their legs?

    No, but I do shave my back, it has really improved my shrimping technique.

    I shave my legs, It just feels better grappling. But that is strange about your instructor, you should ask him if he has an issue about something you did. If it is about you beating one of his higher belts, i wouldn't want to train under him. Good luck, and it isn't gay to shave your legs man.

    Fuck em. If you feel it improves your game or if it provides less irritation...who the hell cares.

    But I would probably keep a low profile about it. If you still want to train at this gym, I wouldn't do anything that would ostracize you

    whats wrong with painting nails and shaving legs? the grapling community is pretty homophobic i guess

    its kind of ironic because we roll around with sweaty guys

    It is not ironic, why would someone shave their legs, paints their nails and put eye liner to train with sweaty guys?

    I am missing the point of the thread.

    Are you gay and you are saying that EB is gay as well?
