Take it to the next level: Try the No Gi challenge

The No-Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu utilises the principles of BJJ – leverage, position, hip movement etc. – and employs a full range of BJJ submissions and defenses. The different aspect though is that all training or sparring is performed with the use of a “Gi” – The term kimono is sometimes used to describe the outfit, especially in Brazil. In this program, students are obliged to use official Gracie Barra rash guards and fighting shorts, the perfect way to take advantage of the No-Gi class and sparring with your colleagues. Training with No-Gi removes the option to take a hold of collars, sleeves and lapels and makes the art faster paced, more explosive and yet more mental.

No-Gi BJJ is a great base for people wanting to compete in Mixed Martial Arts events and also helps develop a BJJ student’s game further, removing their reliance on clothing grips.
