This is absolutely true. Shoes aren’t allowed on dojo mats! Or, at least, they weren’t allowed to be on the mat at the place I went to. Was that place even technically a “dojo”? Bah. I don’t know. I just like that word. Everything can be a dojo if you can imagine it.
Greg’s meant to be a really big guy, but his height changes a lot as I get better at drawing, find ways to make him look huge without simply making him really tall, and realize that it’s really difficult to fit him in panels with other characters if he’s seven feet tall. I think he was 6’6” last I adjusted his height? He’s going to be the shortest character one of these days.
