Re: Wearing your gi and belt in public
Personally... If you're not a 10 year old, it's dorky. At least take off the jacket and belt and carry them separately.
Generally, even if I'm at a full day seminar or tournament, and going out for some lunch or something, I'll at least take off the jacket and belt. Day to day -- I change before class, and encourage my students to do the same. Why draw silly attention to yourself outside of class?
But, then, of course... there's the whole Leroy Brown thing from The Last Dragon!
