This clip was from the High Rollerz tournament this past weekend. Gi + EBI rules. Everyone smokes before starting their matches and 1st place wins a pound of weed 馃槀

Typical day here in Denver. We have a grow house across the parking lot. During the summer we keep the roll up door open. It consistently reeks of that wonderful skunky smell.

If you don鈥檛 mind my asking, how well or not does that jive with hosting kids classes?

level 3
Blue Belt I - Easton Denver

Kids classes are earlier than I get there, so not really sure. I mean, it just smells like weed, it's not like you can get high from the smell. Hard to move a school because a grow operation moves in next door, can't leave the door down because of the 100+ sweaty BJJ, Muay Thai, Kick Boxers and Crossfitters all in the same room. Maybe the door is down early because less people are there.

Oh okay, gotcha, I mistook your meaning as that you guys had a roll room in your gym to get your Jeff Glover on, not that it was coming from next door.

Nah, the reefers smoke up before coming to class. But yeah, the grow house's HVAC exhaust is skunky and ever present.

level 6

As someone who works at a grow op as a trimmer once you hit a certain plant count there really isn't much you can do for the smell no matter how hard you try

Why should it bother kids? When I was a kid I grew up watching cartoon characters smoke (like Popeye for example), never made me want to smoke. I just respected that was something adults do, like drink booze.

We don't need to hide it out here. Legal as a brewery these days.

Yeah, but things could get a little dicey if you just up and start a weed plantation haha. I think westword or something had an article about a "bud bar" opening soon, where you can smoke the vapes and edibles but no "flower" and hang out.

level 5
Blue Belt I - Easton Denver

Yeah, the regulations are strict, but I'm okay with strict regulation. I don't partake, but I'm glad it is as legal as it is. I'm not aware of the legalities of personal use home growth, but it's probably more strict than buying a homebrew kit.

Nah... go into the weed store and buy a plant haha. Individuals can have up to 6 plants legally. But that is way too much work!

3 flowering at a time just a FYI

I seem to remember reading somewhere that the bud bar idea got struck down and is no longer opening. I believe it was a sort of "private club" idea where you had a membership and could therefore smoke while you were "out in public" except that you weren't considered in public because of the private club designation.

Sketchy way to try sidestep the law of no smoking in public places.

level 6
1 point3 months ago

Meh. That sort of thing isn't just used to get around smoking bans. That's the same way a lot of sex clubs operate - have a "private club" where you have to sign up for a membership, but then you can engage in whatever you want (with consenting partners) in a quasi public space.

level 7

Yeah, I mean the cannabis industry didn't invent the loophole. Maybe "sketchy" was the wrong word to use...I think "cheesy" might have been better. It's a cheesy way to skirt around the law.

I used to have a training partner who was in his 40s and had lost like over a hundred pounds doing jiu jitsu but couldn't quite kick the cigarettes. Nice guy but sometimes hated rolling with him.

People rolling on the ground half naked or with pajamas, dripping sweat is ok but this is NSFW?

Yes. BJJ, Judo or wrestling are recognized sports. Two dudes smoking a fat joint in a corporate workplace... not so much. It doesn't bother me, but Northern Wisconsin isn't known for being tolerant towards the heefer.

Yeah, just look at pro skateboarding and snow boarding. No way those people would touch the devil's lettuce.

level 3

Do they have competitions centered around it tho? Weed was the whole entire selling point of the tournament. Without the weed gimmick, it woulda just been some startup that no one would really watch or care about.

The tournament is trolling. It鈥檚 not a legit lasting format. But people who don鈥檛 know shit about jiujitsu are going to see this and think it鈥檚 real

People who don鈥檛 know shit about Jiu-Jitsu aren鈥檛 watching in the first place and they don鈥檛 care about it in the slightest.

level 5
1 point3 months agoedited 3 months ago

The video has 160k+ views in 1 day. You don鈥檛 get that viewership from a strictly BJJ demographic.

Also it was supposedly covered by Vice, which is the most mainstream media outlet I can think of that has covered a BJJ tournament.

So yeah, people who don鈥檛 know shit about jiujitsu are going to watch this.

Even the people who do know shit about jiujitsu are misinterpreting the video. The whole thing is just trollish.

level 4

But people who don鈥檛 know shit about jiujitsu are going to see this and think it鈥檚 real

...are never going to see or hear anything about this because its niche af

level 5
1 point3 months agoedited 3 months ago

I disagree. It was supposedly covered by Vice which is a bigger media outlet to the public by a long shot than any other media coverage that BJJ gets. The meme potential is huge. This video already has 14,000 views in less than 24 hours on the High Rollerz instagram

Edit: and 150k views in one day from the repost from grapplersplanet instagram. These aren鈥檛 viewing numbers you get from BJJ posts. A rough estimate for views on other BJJ comp footage is around 11k-50k. Their must be additional viewers from some other (non-BJJ) demographic that account for this anomalously high viewer count. Which means it鈥檚 not 鈥渘iche af鈥 it鈥檚 reaching the eyes of non-BJJ people.

level 2

Thank you for the concern, grasshopper.

level 2

I agree. It鈥檚 going to get a lot of exposure for a Bjj tournament since it鈥檚 getting covered by Vice and it makes the sport look like a joke. It is being MCed by Renato Laranja who is literally a comedian but a lot of people don鈥檛 know that he鈥檚 doing a bit so they鈥檙e going to think he鈥檚 being serious. Also the whole concept just seems like trolling. I think it鈥檚 hillarious and it probably won鈥檛 have too much of a lasting effect. But short term, it鈥檚 going to make the sport look goofier to a spectator than it already does.

level 3
-2 points3 months ago

u and those people are the minority. quit being so sensitive about everything.

level 4

Lol I think it鈥檚 funny. It鈥檚 a troll concept that has potential of going viral.

The video has received 160k+ views in 1 days. You don鈥檛 get those viewership numbers from a strictly BJJ crowd (I would actually speculate that the BJJ crowd is a minority of that 160k).

You underestimate the stupidity of people. It鈥檚 not a stretch to say someone鈥檚 going to misinterpret this as an actual legit representation of jiujitsu.
