Training with just gi top?

How do you guys feel about this?  I'm a 90% no-gi player, but we've got another guy training with us who really likes the gi, so a lot of times we'll do a round or two rolling each way, except I'll just put on a top over my rash guard and shorts.  He's still got most everything available to grab except pants legs, but I know I'll grab his in a heartbeat.  Does that seem fair?  Should I stop grabbing his too, start wearing my pants, or just not worry about it?  Thanks.

Gi top with shorts? Sounds like you're training him for sambo.


I thought about getting some of those gi shorts to make it really look official.

You should also get some wrestling shoes and beefy russian legs.
