    I do JJJ, and most of the time we're doing no-gi, but my coach, who is a black belt in judo as well, teaches a gi class about twice a month...I consider myself pretty good at gi-throws and judo-type clinching; however, my gi-groundwork sucks. I know 2 or 3 collar chokes, 1 or 2 gi-sweeps, but have no real experience with using and combining them.

    Prefer no-gi because in Kalifornia we don't wear much. In fact it was 90 here the other day when there was a blizzard over the whole east coast. No gi here lends itself better to MMA type fighting as well which I prefer over tournament style.

    Nuances:

    No-gi:
    Faster game
    Less submissions
    Opponent is harder to grab/control
    Lends itself better to MMA

    Gi:
    Slower game
    More submissions available
    Opponents easier to control
    Get accustomed to being held by clothing / tangled


    Best advice... Train both Gi and no-gi.

    That some kind of binary code BJJ mind trick? For some reason I feel like training right now and I can't figure out why...

    I always liked gi work with my Kenpo gi, add any sweat and it was like slippery plastic, at Judo guys would go to throw me and it would slip out of their hands as they went to lift me.

    Generally I don't like the gi, because I associate it with Jublow.

    No, it was polyester, not cotton ala Judo/BJJ.

    I did a year and a half with a gi, and then a year without a gi. I think training with a gi builds better defensive technique, because if you get too excited you can get caught pretty easily.

    Whereas with no-gi, I found myself being able to scramble a lot more. I prefer no-gi, but that's probably more because I associate the gi with getting owned (prior to taking up grappling with a gi I had no grappling experience).
