Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a highly effective martial art which focuses on ground techniques to neutralize, control and submit an opponent.
BJJ uses leverage and technique to overcome size and strength while developing a practitioner’s timing, sensitivity and fitness. Traditional BJJ is taught and practiced while wearing a Gi which can be grabbed and used to control an opponent and apply chokes and joint manipulations.
No Gi Jiu Jitsu is just that, BJJ without the Gi. No Gi Jiu Jitsu is based on the same techniques as BJJ, without reliance on the gi. No Gi Jiu Jitsu is a slightly faster paced game which also relies on leverage and technique to control and submit an opponent. No Gi Jiu Jitsu is typically taught and practiced wearing board shorts and rash guards and relies more on controlling a body’s natural gripping points; the neck, wrists, elbows, knees, etc.
