    Yeah so me and a freind went to check out this gi bjj place. when we get there the teacher was really good and the students were really good but the only problem I saw was that they only trained in gi and used the freaking gi heavily. So we go in and roll for a class. They let us start off standing and me and my friend have a really good judo background. We practiced throws for a little bit and me and my friend worked with each other. I was kinda happy I was in the gi because at this point I was like holly crap I can do all my judo throws with ease.

    We went up against the gi guys and basically went to town on these guys with the throws. These guys revolved to much around the gi though when we were grappling they freaking use the gi as a weapon and try to use your gi. It was kind of annoying. I tapped out a couple of his guys with arm bars and triangles.

    The whole gi thing is really a turn off to me. After last night I realized Im all about the no gi.

    Blasphmey, I had the exact opposite experience. I was doing NOGI and had several submissions locked up, or so I thought but people slipped out, well really one person inparticular that sweats like he just got out of the pool. Really made me realize that I need to train GI more and have it help me tighten up my game. The GI is a weapon, not their fault you don't know how to use it well when it comes to BJJ. It's NOT Judo, can't have the same mindset about the gi.

    :madfawk:

    You are the kind of guy that comes in now and then to the school.. put on the gi you borrowed or never use, think you're tough shit beating up the white belts and giving the blue belts a hard time.


    Im surprised you weren't dealt with by one of the senior guys.

    .

    I've got probably just as much or more judo than you do (threadstarter), and I can tell you that your attitude blows, not to mention I can't fathom how as a judoka you can be surprised by someone using their gi as a weapon.

    :ugh:

    Seriously I'm fucking completely confused. How can you be a judoka or claim to be and then say this whole "gi thing" is a turn off for me.

    :wtf:

    I've noticed you spelled it "jiu jitzu."
    This explains a lot.

    Yeah I think it means white belt and fucking terrible.

    he said he was good at judo and was surprised when the gi was used against him..

    I think he watched some karo pariysian videos and some marcelo garcia highlights and armbarred a white belt and crossed his legs around someones head and squeezed as hard as he could forcing a tap and thought it was a Triangle.

    Gi & nogi > nogi

    The best in the world in MMA have trained in Gi at one point in their lives.

    I was rolling with the purple belts. I rolled with one blue belt and he was good.

    I left the gi game a long time ago. I have a couple of years of judo under my belt but after I went no gi I never looked back. What I don't like about gi is that in the real world people don't wear gi's and for my application it doesn't help out. When I was grappling with these guys I noticed that they weren't like some people who do both gi and no gi and use gi to work on there technique. They just use gi. If these guys take of their gis and start working with the sliping and sliding they will have a hard time. I also noticed most of these guys dont know how to work with out the gi.

    I have a couple of years of judo under my belt. The ground game is completely different in judo. A lot of people don't stress subs in judo they mainly work positioning and throws because thats what gains points subs are risky and they don't let you work as much as bjj. Its a different animal. In competition judo I went to an event where one guy never went to the ground.

    And how are you so sure of this, did you roll with them NoGi. Most people tend to use GI techniques when rolling in teh GI. :ugh2:

    Nationals? Jr Nationals? What Federation?

    you guys sound more mcdojo then me because you like playing around in your pajamas. In a real situation your not gonna have a nice gi to grip on to your gonna need to work with what you have. If you train only gi your bassically just training sport. If you train both nogi and gi I can appreciate that. Thats great. These guys didnt do that.

    Its a preference thing I hate gi because I dont think its practical.

    :o
    Cause you're a fucking newb and dont get it

    I dont understand how many times I need to explain, the ART of grappling (that's what it is) is best played very slowly, with friction and with the most threats possible. With the gi you will find grips and people gripping you in ways that will make you realize danger areas.. the game will slow down and it will be more methodical..


    This seems like common sense to me..

    Maybe that's why I destroyed everyone at that tournament.. maybe they were all like you people.

    Again, you basing your speculations off of nothing. You both had GI's on and they used it against you. You have no idea what their NoGi game looks like.

    And my god, do you really think gi is that impractical. I mean it's not like anyone ever wheres clothes, jackets or coats. Hell I can remeber the times when working as a bouncer that i've GI choked someone. The look on their face afterwards is priceless.
