UFC Fighters Experience
Teens Grappling Session
NO GI Class
Tournament ALBANY


         NO-Gi is also known as submission fighting, combat grappling, or simply as No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu, and takes the same approach as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but without the advantage (or disadvantage) of a uniform to grab on to.

          The difference between BJJ and submission grappling is in the grips. In the stand-up game, the grips provided by the BJJ uniform allow for many judo-style throwing and submission techniques, while submission grappling take-downs resemble those of traditional wrestling. Grips also come into play on the ground. Where the BJJ ground game is methodical and technical, submission grappling moves tend to be more fluid and fast-paced. We have found that it is best for the student to know the basic fundamentals of Jiu-Jitsu in order to properly excel in this class.

         Without the basic knowledge of Jiu-Jitsu, it can create bad habits with your techniques; having the fundamentals engrained into your muscle memory allows this class to be even more beneficial. 



  •          Self-Defense


  •       Fitness – In No-Gi Class you will warm up, the drills and the rolling (sparring) will literally leave you crawling off the mats at the end of class.


  •      Balance and Motor Skills


  •      Stress Relief - When you’re in a Jiu-Jitsu class, the drudgery of a your 9 to 5 grind immediately goes away. When you have some 200 lb dude trying to choke you, it’s impossible to think about the quarterly reports you have to hand in tomorrow morning. Your Jiu-Jitsu class will become a little mini vacation from your cubicle and your screaming kids. A No-Gi class is like your personal tree fort. It’s your sanctuary. ​


  •      Friendship - When you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or No-Gi you’ll instantly make friends. You need the help of other people to master BJJ. You can’t learn Jiu-Jitsu by yourself in some basement somewhere. You need someone’s arm to perfect your arm bar. You’ll need someone’s neck to practice your chokes. Instantly a strong bond of trust and reciprocation happens. “Hey complete stranger! How about we practice this cool arm breaking technique together. You can practice on me first and as long as you keep me safe all I ask in return is that you give me your arm in return.” Basically with Jiu-Jitsu, you can choke out your best friends- pretty sweet deal ​
