YO!! I never train at the dojo in my street clothes but I'll do weapons or foot work at my house for extra practice and I don't get into full uniform. Further, at times we'll be kicked out of our dojo by the fencing guys (due to all their tournaments) and we'll do weapons training outside in the park in loose clothing. Its actually quite refreshing and is even like free advertisement for the dojo as passer byers get curious! Late:cool:

In the dojo with a partner? Never.
Solo training, after a run, in shorts? A couple times a week.

Doing that tonight, but not by design. The building where we meet is having a/c work done, so we're taking weapons outside and practicing in street clothes. Now I just need to find a pair of jeans I can actually wear in seiza! LOL

We do all our weapons outside, in full dojo gear.
It strikes me (pun intended) that I'd be *more* likely to be attacked walking around the city in my gi than in my street clothes.Like a billboard saying "here, test me!"

I replied "Never," but that's for my regular street clothes. However, when I work out in the morning, it'll be in a t-shirt and either my pajama pants or sweat pants, and I cycle through some drills from Aikido among other things. The devil is in the details.
