Why Do I Need A Gi?

There is an never-ending debate as to which training method is better, gi or no-gi? In this video we discuss in detail the pros and cons of each training method.

• Training in the gi hones your escapes and submission counters.
• Training without the gi will hone your control and submissions.
• You can’t get a black belt until you master both.
• Training gi is VERY realistic for the streets since we live in Pennsylvania! A street opponent will almost certainly grab your clothing in a real fight and you must know how to deal with it.
