White and blue belts, for example, aren’t allowed to use bicep slicers, calf slicers, kneebars or toe holds.

Should I wear a rashguard under my gi?
Rash Guards – Even if you don’t plan on trying no-gi – which is silly, you should at least try it – some academies require you to wear a rash guard under your gi, for sanitary reasons.
