To Gi or not to Gi, that is the question
This last weekend, someone mentioned that it is better to learn groundfighting with a gi initially. The reason, however, was interesting: it was because you use less strength, power, and speed when you have a gi on -- and because a Gi slows things down...
Is this the case? Can someone confirm this?
I can't imagine that it is the case ... but I have been wrong before.
My reasons for no gi -- is that any techs that work without a gi should work with a gi as well - but not the other way.
