Just got out of class...

    Thu, 2006-10-05 20:22 — cshudson

    I just got out of my jiu jitsu class and tonight was the first night with a gi believe it or not, i started back in january with no-gi and then had to take a few months off cause i broke my nose, but dang these gi guys are good, i got whipped good tonight and a black eye. How many of you guys prefer gi over no gi? I prefer gi now...:) :)

    I train no gi only because as an Officer I can not rely on a suspect having thick clothing to hold onto. Although there are some good chokes I can use on a suspect who has a shirt on. :cool:

    You got a black eye? What were you training with a spaz. I started in the gi. It is awesome. But now i train more no gi. the gi is dying. the brazilians are killing it. too bad.

    I do not believe that the Brazilians are killing it, but that MMA is becomming more popular with the majority of people. If someone enter the octagon wearing a gi (like Royce did years ago), and won the title, then people would be all about the gi training again. :cool:

    yeah, i started in the no-gi class back in january and now have moved on to the gi class and love it, but about that black eye it wa a guy that has been taking it for about 3months on and off, iplaced my guard on him and he kinda started bouncing around trying to stack me and then somehow got a thumb underneath my eye, it was kinda weird, its all good though

    NO-GI
    1. I got a broken nose, from 2 guys that were rolling close to me and my partner, the dudes heel hit me in the nose.

    2. Just the normal scrapes and bruises

    GI
    1. Just my new black eye. I claim it, its neat to show off to my GF...LOL

    :) I love gi,its much more technical.I believe the technicality of gi training makes your game progress faster. but im not saying no gi is bad your still training and thats the important part.:)

    I started with Judo, so the gui (specially grips off the gui) are in my blood.
    But I love no-gui, even though I suck.
