BJJ No Gi
BTC’s No-Gi class is a groundwork class which helps students to mimic the grappling techniques a mixed martial artist would use in a competitive setting. The three main ways that a gi and no-gi grappling class differ are through lack of clothing, strategy, technique and tournament rules. When practicing the art of Jiu Jitsu students implement movements through the use of their gi, while in no – gi classes’ students will be taught on how to implement these movements without the use of the traditional garment.
