Monday’s class was good.  Small group, but solid.  I got a gi burn on my eye again from rolling with Scott, which is bothersome.  I end up going to work and looking like I’ve got pink eye or something. 

We worked some spider guard and de la riva sweeps.  Good stuff.

Still not feeling 100% energy-wise, but from what I’ve seen that won’t be better for even a couple more weeks.  Some guys I know have had this crud that’s going around and it’s lingered for months.

The school where I train now has an official website.  I mentioned before that it’s up.  I’m continuing to tweak it, but if you haven’t seen it yet, check it out.  And definitely look us up if you’re in the Maple Valley, WA area. 

I also got Rhino’s “Hot Chocolate” gi done for him.  Turned out great.  Pictures below for that one.  As always, if you’re interested in giving it try, check out my step by step guide to dying your own gi.  Or, if you prefer, you can pay me to do it for you.  I’d be happy to do it for you, for a fee (of course).

Turned out great, I think.  This was a well used, but good condition gi.  The material had been bleached at least a couple of times.  You can tell because the embroidery got mangled a little and the texture of the fabric changes. 

After dying, the gi looks really good.  I think Rhino will be pleased.

    That looks totally awesome. I’m not a fan of brown, but this looks really, really good. I’m almost tempted to try it on one of my gis :-)

      Chris, you should do it. Check out my step by step tutorial and pick a gi you like, but wouldn’t get too upset about goofing up too much. If you take your time, it’s not too difficult.

    You did a good job with dying it, but personally not a fan of brown. Green would be cool and unique.

      Thanks! What I love is that it’s about what you like. I’ve done several green gis, and they look great. I did a dark green one for myself, which I like (a Bad Boy gi.) I also did one that’s damn near flourescent. He wanted a really bright green. It also turned out great.
