Womens BJJ superstar Kyra Gracie made a bit of a splash last week when a photo from her latest magazine photoshoot was posted online (source unknown). The photo showed her with a gi top on and no trousers. Reaction from the majority of people online was predictably laddish - for example the many as can be found on this Reddit/BJJ thread.

My team mate and instructor - UK brown belt champ Daniel Strauss - decided it was time to send up the image with his own hilarious take on the same photo.

Fellow blogger Julia has her views on the Kyra-as-sex-object discussion, you can read it here.

Not enough assery? Here are more photos of Daniel #kyra-ing. Photographs by Sophie Walters who is the actual one that owns the purple gi with the yellow Meerkatsu patch. Enjoy!

SO refreshing! Thanks Strauss! I think every girl that does BJJ is about to become fans of the Raspberry Ape!
