    Japanese superhero costume? Fuk you. The gi/kimono is what they traditionally wore in everyday life. What an ignorant thing to say. That’s like saying Americans look like superheros with their baseball hats and jeans. For shame, sir. For shame.

  2. Erik Wahlberg says:

    Ha-ha. This DID piss of some people on youtube if you read the comments. Eddie rules because he keeps it real.

  3. Offended Guy says:

    How is that keeping it real? Okay, let me keep it real too. Eddie is a drug addict who smokes so much that he probably shits hemp. And he is scared to compete because his win over Royler was luck. And the rubber guard doesn’t work.

    Oh snap! Oh snap!!! Do I rule because I kept it real?

  4. Tux says:

    “oh snap! Oh snap”

    haha, at least Offended Guy is funny.

  5. Erik Wahlberg says:

    Offended guy you also rule for keeping it real!

    Japanese Superheroes rule as well :P

  6. Michael Richards says:

    I thought Eddie was funny.

  7. Erik Wahlberg says:

    For real, though, Eddie is VERY successful in spite of his vices (who out there doesn’t have a vice?) has never ducked Royler that I know of (he even talks about how Royler wasn’t interested in a rematch in his DVD…he said/ she said I guess). It’s only luck to the guy who lost if he can’t man-up and say he got beat…really a cop-out of a comment. And, the last I checked there were plenty of examples of the rubber guard working quite well :)

    10TH Planet rules not because it keeps it real, but because it IS real!

  8. Offended Guy says:

    Don’t get me wrong. I actually LOVE Eddie Bravo. I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a 10th Planet nuthugger. I said all that BS to make a point; I don’t really believe any of it.

    But the fact remains, what he said was pretty ignorant and I was kinda offended. And I’m not even Japanese.

    I hate the gi too, but I’m not gonna be all racist or be a bigot about it.

  9. Erik Wahlberg says:

    I feel you…and yeah since you were posting here I suspected you were a fellow nut-hugger. Heh.

    Maybe he’s just being a super smart-ass, or he’s trying to get attention (which probably draws more counter-culture bjj guys into his fold). I dunno. But, yeah. I feel you, man.

    Have a good week!

    So fragile tha ego is. Comedy should be more sensative 2 people who dont kno what the fuck real is… Its not their fault anymore than it is for the blind or deaf. So you were born without a sense of humor. I pitty you. Poor thing.

  11. Offended Guy says:

    Umm…firstly, this has nothing to do with my “ego.” What the hell have you been reading? Dumbass. Secondly, Eddie’s views on the gi IS REAL. Finally, wake the fuk up dumbass, some jokes and sense of humor ARE offensive to others. You ignorant prick. What’s funny to you may not be funny to others. For example, I might find it hilarious if your mom got ran over by a car and she pissed herself before she died. Get it now, dumbass?

    Debacle, you were born homosexual. But you can’t help it. Poor thing.

  12. Offended Guy says:

    @ Ian:

    Do people in the East still dress like this?



  13. Offended Homosexual Guy says:

    “Debacle, you were born homosexual. But you can’t help it. Poor thing.”

    Good thing that wasn’t offensive to gays :)

  14. Erik Wahlberg says:

    Maybe I’m just bored and wanted to post something, but if you look at the gis many jiu-jitsu guys wear they have so many emblems and decorations that they look like a “Japanese Super Hero”, not that it is a Japanese thing, but the kimono/ gi is Japanese so it makes you think of that…and all the logos and emblems are like a super hero costume. Take for instance, this (non) Japanese guy.


    If you REALLY think about it, it is a bit too much. And, many bjj guys dress like that.

    I know, btw, that no-gi guys sometimes do the same thing, but it is generally not so over-the-top.

  15. Offended Guy says:

    If I had said, “Debacle, you were born straight. But you can’t help it. Poor thing.”

    Would that be offensive to straight people?

    Anyways, as long as we’re offending people here…let’s cover everything.

  16. Tux says:

    I take back the whole “Offended Guy” being humorous.

    Now he is just being confrontational.

  17. Offended Guy says:


  18. Debacle says:

    True colors.
    But I am a flaming homo and my mom only shit herself before her untimely death. So despite your enthusiastic persistance, I remain unoffended. I bet your cute ;)

  19. Offended Guy says:

    Oh, I see. So your twisted “sense of humor” (is that what you call it?) cannot differentiate between what’s tasteful and what’s distasteful. You must think racism is pretty funny, huh?

    I’m glad that you’re dumb enough to remain offended. Good for you, champ! By the way, did you graduate from high school? Don’t lie, now.

    I am cute. You would probably fantasize about me using your dildo.

  20. Ian says:

    @ Offended guy..


    You played right into my point about historical dress.
    You said, “The gi/kimono is what they traditionally wore in everyday life.”

    No-one in civil society dresses the way they did 100 or so years ago.
    So, the Kimono is not needed.

    This is 2009, so tights, board shorts, and rash guards rule the day.

    Glad you agree!

  21. Offended Guy says:

    Good point.

    Okay, then. Let me revise my original sentence to make you happy.

    “What an ignorant thing to say. That’s like saying tights, board shorts, and rash guards make practitioners look like American superheros.”

    There, happy? I’m glad you got so hung up on the important things…

    Maybe you should focus LESS on semantics and MORE on the POINT I was trying to make: that it was “an ignorant thing to say.”

  22. Offended Guy says:

    By the way, you just said, “the Kimono is not needed.”

    Who are you to determine that? Oh, I’m sorry, do you represent BJJ, Judo, and other grappling arts on behalf of all practitioners?

    Hey, maybe tights, board shorts, and rash guards are “not needed.” Don’t state your personal opinion as a fact.

  23. Ian says:

    “That’s like saying tights, board shorts, and rash guards make practitioners look like American superheros.”

    I don’t mind this one bit! :)
