    Yeah so today the instructor decided to let us roll no gi and I have been doing gi for a little while now. Before all I used to do was gi. So I guess it was a combination of me getting back in the swing of things and training with the gi made my technique ALOT better but when I got the gi on I WENT TO TOWN. I mean it was a HUGE jump in terms of skill.

    With gi I can barely hang with the blues and the purples will be able to beat me off of points but they cant sub me but today when I rolled no gi there wasnt a blue belt in the gym I couldnt beat. I mean I had to work like hell to do it but I was owning them all no gi. I then rolled with a couple of the purples and in terms of no gi we were at the same level. They would catch me and I would catch them etc etc.

    The instructor laughed at me hard after class. He told me I was pretty good at no gi and would get alot better if I continued to train with the Gi. He told me today Im banned from nogi for the next 3 months. I concur that this will help me greatly in the long run.

    i used to hate the gi bot now I am all about it. usually don't even want to roll nogi anymore. too much work, too fast paced.

    zhoo zheetsoo
