i really appreciate your stories about back in the days. Must be a cool time with the loin clothes. Today everbody is in synthetics. I would really like to find a "natural" rashguard.
To the tournament: Would be cool if there is a starting class for vaporist. If this happens i will come over the sea for sure.
In my team it is an unwritten rule to don't step on the mat under influence of any drug. But my trainer and mates all knows about my use of cannabis and they don't consider it as disrespectful. But it is more that it is tolerated and not open discussed. I think living in an illegal state plays also a part in this. I also don't know many grapplers, which are rolling high, or at least nobody talks about it open.
But for me beeing beeing high while rolling helps a lot. I think even my mates like it when i am high because i am more relaxed. For example when someone put a lot pressure on me and plays very aggressive it helps me to keep cool and calm and go on with my game. Sober i would maybe also start beeing aggressive or hectic and start to make mistakes.
I also try out more stuff and search for new ways, if i realize that i am rolling into a dead-end street.
yaman, to watch Jeff Glover rolling is really pleasuring for my eyes. He is like water (my friend)
One last thing: Alkohol or stuff like coke is really a big no-go on the mat. This is my opinion and i think most of the grapplers/fighters sharing this opinion (luckily).
Enjoy live, keep on rollin'
