At Mat Shark Jiu-Jitsu
Our Nogi program runs in both the day time and evening. Our coaching team for this class includes Adam Jacques, Conrad Marcus, Bryce Nie and Lance Kinnaird. No-gi grappling is a form of competitive grappling or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training where participants do not wear the traditional uniform (the Gi). In no-gi grappling, practitioners wear tighter-fitting, moisture-wicking attire such as rashguards and shorts (availiable for sale at the club if needed) The absence of the gi removes the ability to use the clothing for grips and control, making the sport faster-paced and more reliant on body positioning, speed, and agility. No-gi grappling focuses on techniques that can be applied in both self-defense and sportive contexts, emphasizing control, submissions, and positional dominance without the traditional gi-related strategies.
It is popular in mixed martial arts (MMA) training and competitions, as it closely simulates real-world scenarios where clothing is not a factor.
