    I'm glad you brought this thread back to life. One of the schools in my area has just started offering a no-gi judo class. Are these commonly offered elsewhere?

    I do my judo at an mma gym, so we have dedicated no gi classes (in addition to gi judo and wrestling classes). I love no gi judo. Dunno how common these are, but I think they are getting more so.

    The school I used to attend and hope to again, has a no gi Judo class. Most of the instructors there are Judo black belts with high school and college wrestling back grounds. They also compete in Judo and grappling tourneys (gi and No Gi). So is it common, I don't know but some people do it.

    I guess it's kind of hard to answer the question of 'how common' without taking a poll.
    I guess a better question would be to ask if anyone can remember a no-gi judo class being given before MMA became so popular. By the way, I bought the Karo book last week. And I think it is pretty good. It has step by step pictures of techniques from multiple angles(believe it or not it is really easy to follow) using grips that I never would have thought to try. My favorite is the triangle grip for tai otoshi but I'm still a little confused as to why he lifts his leg on the tai otoshi, making it look more like harai goshi.
