Student Question:
“What is the difference between
Jiu-Jitsu with the gi and no-gi?”

<center>Student Question:<br>“What is the difference between<br>Jiu-Jitsu with the gi and no-gi?” image

A Gracie Barra student asks “I’ve been training in the gi and have been thinking about doing some no-gi training. What is the biggest difference between gi and no-gi training?”

Master Carlos Gracie Jr., when asked about the difference between self defense jiu-jitsu and the more sport oriented training replied that he felt there was only one jiu-jitsu. That is to say the core techniques, positions and principles of jiu-jitsu are mostly the same despite a different rule set for competition or a street self defense situation. A back mount position is dominant with or without the gi. The fundamental jiu-jitsu technique – the rear naked choke is as effective in a self defense situation as it is training no-gi at the Gracie Barra school.

Now that we have made that point, what ARE the main differences between gi and no-gi?

The Most
Important Escape

If I asked you what is the most important escape in jiu-jitsu, what would you say?

 

If we asked a room full of students at the Gracie Barra school this question,

for certain at least one hand would be raised in the air “I get stuck underneath side control and can’t get out. How do I escape?”

Is Sport Jiu Jitsu
Good For Self Defense?

This is a debate that is increasing in the jiu jitsu world as jiu jitsu becomes more popular and the availability of sport jiu jitsu competitions increases and more schools move towards teaching sport jiu jitsu in their classes.

The fundamental question at the heart of the debate is “Does training sport jiu jitsu prepare someone adequately for a street self defense situation?”
