Anyone else find the BJJ "hand slap & fist bump" absolutely disgusting?
Bowing — Muh Japanese honor (the best)
Shaking hands — Okay
Hand slap & fist bump — HUE HUE HUE / BIX NOOD MUHFUGGA
And they do it all the time. Not just when starting and stopping with your partner, but at every restart too.
I mean seriously, those kind of greetings are usually reserved for lowlife thugs.
> not performing hand slap, fist bump, alternating elbow touches, hip check, imaginary hat tip, hair slick back, slap own ankles x2, and spint over right shoulder before, during, and after practice sessions and matches
Fucking rude, people. Show some civility.
> Do it all the time before drills in football
> get into wrestling
> do it every drill and sparring
> do Judo alongside and try and do it
> dont get why it's annoying or disrespectful
I bow and do this all the time before randori, a bunch of dorks to get but hurt over it.
I'll take the bait
>Bowing is for shit tier weeabo autistic fucks you might as well do aikido and talk about your chi
>Hand shaking is God tier western gentleman level of awesome very respectful
> bumping gloves make sense for boxing as handshake is not viable also makes sense for mma do to gloved striking heritage
>Slap bump fine simple non verbal way of showing non aggression and readiness to play a quick game of who dies first
Truth to be told, you need something to signal that everything is cool and there are no hard feelings after a roll. I do this is Judo with my friends, but obviously if I'm training at another place I try to be as respectful as possible. Bowing or shaking hands is far to formal.
Shit me OP 'muh triggers' much? Christ almighty, I mean it's just what they do, nothing wrong with it. I bow after each session of Randori and shit most of the time people in my dojo forget to do even that, next thing you'll do is give out to me for helping my opponent up and giving them a pat on the back if I throw them and vice versa because "IT'S NOT MUH JAPANESE HONOR!"
>The contestants are free to bow when entering or leaving the contest area, although it is not compulsory.
>When entering the Tatami area, fighters should walk to the entrance of the contest area at the same time
>The contestants must NOT shake hands before the start of the contest.
>Bowing Is The Equivalent To A Salute, Handshake, Etc.
>If athletes attempt to shake or slap hands, the referee may try to verbally ("NO") dissuade them
I'll straight up admit I don't compete, I don't think I'm at a level where I'm ready to do so, I'd like to but it's a longer term goal than some others right now, ergo a lot of the etiquette is just in dojo stuff and I wasn't considering competition etiquette.
You feel me dawg?
