Gi in jiu jitsu is a pretty dominated form of rolling in BJJ. But no gi jiu jitsu fights are no less spectacular. We all enjoy watching the Eddie Bravo Invitational (EBI) submission only jiu-jitsu tournaments or the no gi ADCC championships when the best BJJ fighters meet together.
No-gi grappling is a form of martial art that does not use the traditional uniform with a gi jacket, pants, and belt. The lack of gi and the absence of grips on clothing make it change the game.
You need to have another plan if you fight without a gi. For instance, jiu jitsu takedown techniques will vary for gi or no gi, and will impact the fighting line significantly from the very start.
