Re: Does anyone know how to soften a dogi?

Nice one Matt. It may be possible to do all that in Edinburgh but in the classier North East of England I can't find any volcanos, the rest is no problem. Aw well, just have to resort to the fabric softener.

Just Tumble Dry it into SUBMISSION!

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.

Re: Does anyone know how to soften a dogi?

Don't be too surprised if none of the answers above work for you.

They don't teach anyone the secret kotodama for gi softening until rokudan, and then its only if the candidate can find a way into the entrance to the hidden laundry at Hombu.

On further review, perhaps John Riggs can refer you to a soke who would be willing to help you out ... for the right price.

Parrot? Oh, you must mean the Norwegian Blue! Lovely plumage, eh?

But, really, wouldn't you rather have an exploding penguin on top of your telly? I have one fresh in from Burma!

The fun way to soften a dogi - put on your favourite punk rock CD and jump up and down on your gi
