today I was lucky enough top T up a training session with my good mate Steve, He just bought a new Gi from Grapplingstore.com and its a really nice Koral gi that has a thick collar and is also really light which is good for BJJ comps (cos you have to weigh in in a gi.
It's good to see that Steve is taking his Bjj seriosuly and is investing in a few nice gis to wear while training and competing. You see many grapplers wearing gis that dont fit or gis that arent maintained but when you see a grappler wearing a nice gi thats well looked after you know your dealing with someone that has a passion for the sport.
Ash, one of my clients told me that you would pay $300 for a dinner suit that you wear two or three times a year, why not invest that money into a nice Gi that represents your passion as well as the fact that you wear it 2 or 3 times a week.
Steve and did alot of throwing and had a good ol chat and an awesome time training.
There is a BJJ comp on in 2 weeks time its the BJJ Abu Dhabi Trials and the winner gets a paid for trip to compete in the Abu Dhabi pro (which is the world champs i thinki) so i hope steve does really well throwing dudes and keeping position and winning each fight any way possible either by points or a submission.
Here are some photos of us in our new gis.
