Bought myself some new sparring gear, but my trunk piece is different than the ones I'm used to in terms of tieing the back. Waaaah how do I do it? Feels like I'm learning to tie my shoes all over again.

The fact that you can actually tie your chest protector by yourself boggles my mind. I'm not limber enough to do that.
I always ask someone to help me.
I bow down to you master.

Well I lost alot of sleep over it, but I figured it out. Except this one has velcro straps stuck on some round thingy with 4 slots in it. And the round thing attacked the shoulder piece to the side...dear god its confusing.

Nevermind I figured it out. Does that mean I get my black belt now? Anyone?

The trick to is to lace it up loosely before you put it on, slide it on like a shirt while trying not to let the strings slide out of the loops. If you can get that, its pretty easy to get it tied afterwards. I also only lace the top and bottom loops not the middle one, which makes it easier as well.
