Submission grappling is the “no-gi” version of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu; meaning there is no kimono (gi) worn during training. Instead, participants wear a rashguard or T-shirt and shorts or pants. Submission grappling in many ways is similar to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Sambo, and Judo. There are many similar techniques, submission holds, and positions, just without the ability to grab your training partner’s clothing.
Submission grappling is sometimes referred to as: submission fighting, submission wrestling, grappling, or no-gi jiu-jitsu. It is great for self-defense and is an excellent physical activity for getting in peak condition. We recommend training Submission grappling as a supplement to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training. This allows you to learn the intricate details of training with the gi, but without always relying on the grips.
