    A lot of BJJ intsructors also do some no-gi training, so they'll probably know some good throws and subs w/o using the gi.
    Um, no.....

    Just thought about it really, cause while you're grabbing the gi, you stand up a lot more, but if you look at a lot of folkstyle or freestyle wrestling, they're crouched more most of the time, making a lot of those judo throws harder to execute.

    I'm not saying that you can get any, just that takedowns like the double-leg are way easier in no-gi than in gi.
    Never mind....

    Personally, I find throws like O Goshi and Koshi Guruma much easier to do in no-gi than gi. I find that with the gi, it's a lot easier for my opponent to kind of stiff arm me and make it hard to get hip contact. Without the gi, getting close enough to use koshi waza is much easier.

    I think alot of no-gi grapplers should check into Judo. I have, personally, benefitted from books and videos and wish I had a judo gym here in Fairbanks to train at, to supplement my Vale Tudo. The throws themselves can be daunting, especially when you're trying to work them with little outside help and basically trying to find handholds to replicate what you see. The biggest problem I have had is keeping the opponent from transitioning to back control before I can follow through on a throw, since hip throws done improperly give the back up too easily. Hence why I would love to supplement judo (even with the gi) and learn proper form before trying to transition it into no-gi grips.
