What is No Gi Jiu-Jitsu?

Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that focuses on “grappling” or ground wrestling to force an opponent to submit. In Jiu-Jitsu, using body leverage, chokes, and holds allow an opponent to take down his or her opponent, even if the opponent is larger. This sport is a great workout and is also applicable to real-life self-defence situations.

There are two types of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) - Gi and No Gi. In Gi BJJ, you can grab ahold of your opponents clothing. In No Gi BJJ, you are unable to grab the clothing.
