Since Jits was invented and perfected in Japan and not Brazil I'm starting my own brand of GI-jamas. I'm thinking about a blue triangle w/ JJJ on it.  maybe a huge pad stiched into the ass so guard floppers won't hurt thier soft little tushies jumping to missionary position. Also extra thick back because well lets face it jits guys spend lots of time on thier backs in the missionary guard. What do you think of my ideas?

Will you be putting out any new videos (like Laimon's No-Gi Remix, 101 Subs, Dengue Fever)?

Related - do you have competitors sign releases? Do you have a deal with the event promoter? How does this work for the footage from Brazil? Phone Post

Backside smith, sound like a great idea. I can see you put a lot of thought with it. I would use UVA foam for the ass pad. Make sure you use high temp UVA so it will not curl when people put their gis in the hot dryer. TM the JJJ w the triangle ASAP, cause w an idea this good im sure someone will Definitely steal it.

Bojangles - We don't have access to the tournament footage like we used to. Most tournament promoters will not let us use their footage anymore so with out the new footage its hard to do magazine videos or 101 subs. :(

The event promoters usually have a release in their contract with the competitors. Releases are always good.

Hey Scotty,

I was really surprised to learn (in the OMR interview) that you were the same Scotty Nelson as the snowboarder - I remember reading about you back in the day in old snowboard mags!

I was wondering how your previous career influenced your bjj career/OTM?

Thanks

Do you guys ever enter into business agreements with new start up businesses? For example if someone came to you with a design or brand idea would you ever be interested in taking over manufacturing and distribution for a % on all sales? Phone Post

Dam you are old timer if you remember back that far. LOL

Well i thought that BJJ would be safer since I was already on the ground. I broke 2 ankles, 1 wrist and dropped my intestines through my stomach wall jump off a cliff at mary jane in Colorado.

After that i couldnt snow board too much LOL!!

I think really I just took the free boarding life to BJJ. I like bjj cause it is about everyone has their own also the idea of pro model boards to pro model gis.

not that much.

where did you used to ride?

i forgot. I also learned that the Olympics can ruin a sport really fast. If you think IBJJF is bad... You have no idea. At least a Gracie run who knows BJJ and lives it runs the sport. When the rings gets a sport who knows what will happen. They will put judges in that dont even have anything to do with a sport.
