I was wondering, Has anyone every trained in normal street clothes?
In our dojo, and I suspect in most if not all, we wear our dojo gi (with or without hakama.) New people wear gym clothes until they buy their gi. I have trained in sweats a few time but never in jeans and a t-shirt.
If anyone has were you able to execute movements fluidly? Were the clothes too restrictive? Was finding your center easy? Was foot work with shoes a problem or easier ( NO TOE CATCHING!) ?
I'm just curious as to how it may differ from normal dojo training.
