Thank you Faixa Rua

Just wanted to say thank you on the blog to Faixa Rua for sending me a cool piece of kit to wear on the pilgrimage. The item in question is the Obi Michi wearable BJJ belt, also mentioned recently on Meerkatsu's blog. I first saw a similar item on an american website but was put off buying in fear of taxes. Its a great idea though and I expect it will do well, so Im more than willing to sport it to some clubs and comps.



The item in question has split the BJJ community though, some think its abit cheesy (like 80's guitar solo's, others (myself included) think its awesome (like 80's guitar solo's).





The material is just like a normal gi belt although different to the normal faixa rua belts. Would I be taking it to far by adding my stripe to it?

Adding the stripe, hmmmmmm. Yes you have to do it now.

I think it's quite cool, imo. Stripes would be very interesting, though. Those in the know, would know. ;)

Please don't put stripes on this belt, my friend. And since you've already gotten it, I won't ask you not to wear it.
Those unacquainted with jj won't see it, and those who practice jj will probably laugh if they're of a higher rank than you and you've put stripes on a belt that holds up your pants.

You are right, my own instructer is not a fan. But I like it and am not dettered by others thoughts on it. As their seem to be plenty who do like it. Thanks for the comment though.

Интересная идея, как долго ожидать публикации свежего материала и вообщем стоит ожидать ?
