No Gi Classes
The class is based on techniques of traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and the fundamental principles remain the same. Adjustments are made to compensate for the lack of a uniform to hold on to. In No Gi you learn a whole new set of grips. The wrists, back, of the neck, ankle, knee and elbow grips are all different than traditional Gi grips. Students learn takedowns, positions, transitions, escapes, reversals and how to apply and defend against joint locks, chokes and other submission holds.
The curriculum focuses on fighting in a clinch and on the ground. The No Gi program helps students develop skills that are useful in real self defense situations as well as in the sporting environment. This gives students a new dimension to their existing skill set. It may be trained in solely or in conjunction with traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes. We think that it is important for students to understand both aspects, considering most tournaments offer both gi and No-Gi divisions.
No-Gi training makes for a faster and more dynamic style of fighting. If you are interested in a good fitness program or just to be a more complete fighter, the No-Gi program offers a good combination of both.
All level of experience is welcome at any class. The most important thing to advance your BJJ skills and knowledge is time on the mat. As your mat fitness improves we encourage everyone to come as often as their schedule permits.
Open mat time will be scheduled in the near future. But if you ever need more time to roll just let one of our instructors know and we can arrange to have someone there for you.
