    Default Gi Pants

    Do any of the rest of you find that you sort of end up wearing gi pants all the time? Or it is just me?

    I figure that I am working out practically every day, if only to do the kicks, blocks and punches, so I figure, 'what's the point in changing?'

    Then again, I work from home, so I don't have to worry about people at the office laughing at me.

    Anyone else or am I just a geek?

    I wore mine almost every day it seemed.

    Then when I discovered the hole in the crotch, I scrambled to find my lightweights that I had put god knows where >_o*

    Now I need new heavyweight gi

    I like the medium weight gi's myself.

    My first martial arts instructor used to wear kung fu pants damn near everywhere. To be honest I can't remember a time when he wasn't wearing them.

    It's nice to know I'm not the only geek out there!

    I hit a lot of thrift shops, so I have about 10 or 12 pairs of gi pants. No need for the extra ventilation.

    I figure that they are comfortable and you never know when you're going to need to jump up and kick somebody.

    Geek.

    I don't usually wear them outside the school unless I'm in transit to or from. I do have six pairs and at least a dozen t-shirts though. I do a "school load" of laundry once a week.

    What I have noticed is that almost all of the t-shirts I wear these days are black. Weird.

    I don't generally wear them if I'm not planning ANY kind of workout that day, like maybe on a Saturday, but otherwise, I'm usually doing some sort of workout.

    Kicks, blocks and punches at home, a trip to the gym to do my stuff there, or going to the school.

    God, I need to get a life!

    P.S. Oh, and posting on this forum. It's important to be dressed right to get in the mood to post appropriately.

    So you're saying that ambiance isn't important?

    I think I really AM a geek.

    Being a geek is better than being uninteresting though.

    Kenpo makes us all interesting.

    Wierd. Are all Kenpoist also Sci-Fi geeks??? I know I am. LOL.

    I was seriously P.O.'ed when they can'ed Enterprise. Almost as mad as I was when they can'ed Firefly, Space: Above and Beyond, etc... Oh well...there's still BSG and they ain't can'in that one anytime soon.

    BTW, I heard that the U.K. has a really cool new version of Dr. Who and that Sci-Fi channel is picking it up to air before BSG. WOOT!

    ....oh yeah...pants...I prefer middleweight cause I'm hot natured and I sweat like a pig wearing the heavier ones. Nice image eh? But, I only wear them in class during class. When I work out it's just shorts.

    I don't think my gi pants would go with my heels I have to wear to work... might get some strange looks.

    I only wear my uni in class or in transit... but I have noticed that my regular and work clothes are all becoming monotones; Blacks, Grays, Navys, Browns, and plain Whites.

    Oh, and I am a super geek... just ask Celtic_Crippler.

    Oh yes, we talk about anything, and everything. I love Firefly and Battlestar Galactica. Bob just got an ENTIRE database from a HUGE BG forum for our use.

    Seriously, all you sci fi geeks, go to the drop down menu at the top of your page and select Nephrite's Citadel
