I'm pretty new to Nogi (about a month) and haven't competed yet, although I hope to do so in the near future. Anyway, I always assumed Nogi meant that you couldn't grab any clothing. However, at my class I find frequently that guys are grabbing onto my shorts when trying to pass my guard. I never say anything, but is this allowed in competition? I kinda shrug it off b/c most of them are Gi guys who do Nogi as well, but sometimes it gets annoying and I wanna say "I don't think you can do that." I'm not the kind of dude who bitches about anything when rolling, whether u accidently hit me in the face or anything like that, but if it's against the rules, I guess I should tell em to stop cuz you won't be able to use that tactic in Nogi competition. Last class I even had a guy fully grab onto my knee pad/brace (fingers inside) and tried to use that grip to pass over my knee. I'm pretty damn sure that's not allowed, lol.
