Why You Should Train in a Jiu Jitsu Gi
A quality BJJ Gi, or Jiu Jitsu kimono, is essential for any fighter looking to be involved with the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu discipline.
Training whilst wearing a gi allows newcomers to the sport to practice the fundamental techniques found in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu whilst forcing practitioners to refine and adapt their defensive game. The added friction that exists when training Jiu Jitsu in a gi makes manoeuvres such as escapes that much more difficult. Those who transition from gi training to no-gi training will reap a whole litany of rewards and some of the most respected schools in MMA, including the American Kickboxing Academy, require their fighters to take part in some form of gi training on a regular basis. This is demanded with the mindset that specific training exercises performed in the gi (such as escaping a dominant position and maintaining posture whilst in the guard) will benefit fighters when they switch to training without a Jui Jitsu uniform, as the same exercises should become less of a challenge.
