On a Ques­tion of the Day

Black Belt - - COMMUNITY -

BLACK BELT: Have you spent so much time in a gi that it feels more nat­u­ral than reg­u­lar clothes?

Christo­pher Hise: Yes. And break­ing in a new one is the weird­est thing ever.

Si­mon Beardsworth: Spent so much time in bare feet that shoes feel strange. Jeff DeWilde: Other than my dobok, I have clothes to sleep in and clothes to get to taek­wondo in.

Thomas Pierog: I used to be a pro­gram direc­tor at a dojo, and when I would see stu­dents or par­ents out­side the dojo, they would in­evitably say, “I al­most didn’t rec­og­nize you with clothes on.” I can only imag­ine what by­standers were think­ing!
