Wearing a patch is fine when visiting another academy. It's a good thing to rep your academy.

I know of people who've had to rip patches off their gi in order to train. Not every school is that open to repping other schools.

Loved this. More common to see someone shadow box a combo though.

"1. Don't karate chop your hands in the air at an invisible opponent.
Grapplers get cranky when people who don't understand grappling try to chop them, because, with apologies to Dana Carvey, chopping is for broccoli. I actually have a friend who will turn around and walk away from anyone who busts out the karate chop hands. No explanation, no nothing. He just walks away. I'm not saying that's the right thing to do, but if it happens to you, now you know why."

OMG, I had a coworker who used to make the karate hands at me on an almost daily basis. Most annoying thing ever.

Lol at not being proud to rep your school when travelling. If they ask u to remove them, remove yourself from that academy.
