Rolling with the smelly

I was wondering how other people react to rolling with someone that might not have the best hygiene. Ive never been quite sure about the proper way to handle this particularly unhappy situation and the place that i work out at isnt to formal or at least doesnt seem to have a lot of written rules on these type of things. My approach so far has been to avoid engaging these characters. How do others handle this?

If you just can't help but to train with them, plug your nose up and if they ask why you are say you're learning to conserve your breath and get better cardio lol

It's very unpleasant but that is just one of those things you are going to have to get used to when competing in such a close-range sport like BJJ. I generally tend to be polite enough not to mention anything but if it is really bad then just tell them to wash their kimono.

ahhhhhh I hate rolling with disgusting pigs. I was so happy going from smelly gi Judo my whole life to no gi Bjj. The only advice I could give from personal experience, is to show up as early in the morning as possible before all the hulking brazillians get stinky

Most of my grappling partners have been women so we smell pretty. A few dudes have been kind of rank, but nowhere near as rank as a guy that spars at the same time as me, perfectly nice but sweats like a pig and reeks to high heaven. I wish this guy would bring an extra f*cking shirt or something.

I've gotten used to it. We have to wear judogi and by default it never smells nice.

Actually I haven't experienced this. I did the BJJ thing a try for about 9 weeks then just stopped going. I'm never going to compete in mma and it just felt kind of pointless and not very fun to me. I just stick to kickboxing now xD but g/l to you, cause it sounds nasty
