    I looked on Amazon.de and the Defense soap and wipes are not there...bummer. Truth be told, I don't want to import them as that shit is too much money. I usually just come home, hit the shower (I wash with Head and Shoulders....old school wrestling "trick", hang my gi up to dry then wash it the next day before I go to work.

    Totally right...not sure how many years of toe funk are on those mats, but my guess...5 or more....easy.

But I had some issues with the mats.

    I feel bad about leaving the school because of this, but i wrestled in HS and I know what kind of funk you can get. The school used a gym that was not their's and was also used my an elementary school (who also used them with barefoot kids and didn't wash them after). We put the mats out each class and picked them up after. We did not mop them. I asked about it and was told there was no need since the gi would protect us and for no gi days you should just shower after.

    This didn't fly with me. I felt like this was just NASTY NASTY NASTY. I haven't gone back and I don't really plan to. I am looking for a new school in the area and think I found one. It costs more, but I'd rather have a few less euros in my pocket than to have some funk on my skin.

    Am I overreacting? Should I feel guilty?
    Hey dude did you check this school a buddy of mine trains overthere http://www.bjjberlin.de/kurse/

    Not only is that schools view on the matter unacceptable, but an instructor who would just rationalize that kind of thing to 'the gi will protect you' and 'just shower after' as a justification to not properly clean the mats shows strong characteristic such a weak mind, you you might not want to train under them anyway..

    You made the right decision man. That's fucking crazy. It's pretty obvious that none of the guys from that school have ever had to deal with staph or they would do everything they could to avoid such things. They'll quit being lazy and clean their mats when they all start spreading shit to each other. It's all fun and games until someone gets MRSA.
