    This guy was specifically taught by Carlos Gracie Sr. and his school is in Vegas. I was thinking of going over here to work on grappling (which is lacking in Krav Maga) and maybe towards competition.

    I just wanted to know if anyone had any opinions or has possibly seen some article or video ( :x: )

    I'm just a little worried because the couple times I've been there, everybody has been in a Gi. I don't want to train solely in a gi.

    "It's crucial to train with the gi to have the finest technique. An athlete who wants to be good no gi, must also train with the gi."

    -Marcelo Garcia


    I'd respect his word, since he did win the most prestigious submission wrestling competition in the world, TWICE. he trains only ONE day a week no gi.

    if they dont have any no gi at reylson, then i wouldnt go there. but contrary to popular belief, the gi does not make you a crappy no gi player
