gi or no-gi?

Postby hulfachor » Wed Mar 02, 2011 12:42 am

i was just wondering what linkers prefer, gi or no-gi jiu jitsu? i FAR prefer no-gi. i hate gi chokes, getting rashes from the gi, and how someone can control me by pulling on my clothes. in all fairness, i prefer gi jiu jitsu to no jiu jitsu at all. i just find it less effective in real life situations and pretty frustrating

It's a love-hate relationship with the gi. My sub defense seems to be better when I wear gi's, but without them I pass guard and get into positions I want better. So I just train in both, but as of right now I compete in tourneys with no gi.

I prefer gi, because I'm just starting bjj and I'm taught it's the best way to learn the fundamentals. Also, gi makes sweeping my opponent easier, but also makes me vulnerable to callor chokes and stuff.

No gi is lame once you start sweating.

I like the invisible underhooks and the cunning uses of the Gi. I've only done a little no Gi, so I'm going to say Gi. Both are fun as hell though.

love the gi :) but they both teach u things that apply to both i truly believe it is better to train both gi and nogi jiu jitsu jus because it allows u to learn all aspects of jiu jitsu from explosiveness to control.

Everyone who practices Jiu-Jitsu must wear the Gi it makes you a much technical practitioner and it makes your overall game better

Unless you run around without clothes on then training with a Gi is much more like real life. Gi chokes, sweeps and throws all work with regular clothes just like with a Gi.

I prefer both and have competed in both. The only thing I didn't like about no-gi was at the lower level a lot of wrestlers have the advantage, that goes away as you progress and that is not even there with the Gi on.

^ true, very true and i agree. however it depends on how you look at it...here in texas its 90+ a good 8 or 9 months out of the year so no gi comes in handy. however, i think the gi teaches you proper tech and off balancing..just ask marcelo.

Ask any elite jiu jitsu fighter like Roger, Jacare, Maia, Werdum, Drysdale, etc. Training in the gi is absolutely necessary to achieve success at the highest levels of grappling.
