The two forms of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the Gi and No Gi are clearly exhibited in world-class skills and talent in this video by Marcelo Garcia, a BJJ trained master.
The Gi Jiu Jitsu is defined as grappling using the traditional Gi (traditional Jiu Jitsu uniform), which allows fighters to grab the clothing (Gi) of opponents. The No Gi is grappling without wearing the traditional uniform, instead, fighters wear shorts and rash guard, and no grabbing of clothing are allowed.
BJJ players are completely trained on No Gi and Gi before they can join competitions. Marcelo Garcia is a trained player in both discipline and has shown his grappling fans world class talent and skills in both.
Starting as No Gi with only a brown belt, but with a strong foundation in Gi Jiu-Jitsu Marcelo Garcia has finally refined his skills to become number one in his category. Taking tips from the champion, when training as a BJJ player, it is best to build skills by mastering the Gi first then train for the majority of other BJJ disciplines, to have an easier time adapting to the Gi. While Gi is more complex with all the grips, the No Gi, on the other hand, has other aspects which the Gi doesn’t have. Like; footlocks, brabo chokes and guillotines.
