With the new rise of the UFC, Strike Force and other popular Mixed Martial Arts organizations many people have realized the importance of learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Originally Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was made popular by Royce Gracie defeating all his opponents via submission when it was technically style vs. style. Royce Gracie was also known for always wearing a Bjj Gi when he would compete in Mixed Martial Arts. He did this to emphasize the importance of the Bjj Gi for MMA.
Today, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has become the most important martial art to learn in a MMA fight, and those who do not understand this concept tend not to do so well in MMA. Since MMA fights are fought without any type of traditional martial art uniform many people may believe that to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu you don’t need to train in the BJJ Gi. They are wrong. Jiu-Jitsu is a very technical sport which teaches you with technique and how to defeat the bigger opponent. Training in a Jiu Jitsu Gi is very crucial for any fighter to understand the intricate technique that comes with all the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu moves.
Training in your Bjj Gi will teach you grip strength which is very important in Jiu Jitsu. It also helps you by giving you more submission options compared to no gi training where the submissions are limited. The wider variety of possible submissions gives you more options to think about when going for the submission on your opponent during a fight. This teaches you much better technique when it comes to any sort of fighting. It will also benefit your Jiu Jitsu game in Mixed Martial Arts by getting you to think outside the box to figure out new and innovative ways to grapple and finish off your opponents with a submission victory. If you look at some of the best UFC fighters out there right now such as BJ Penn, GSP, Frank Mir, Anderson Silva, Gabriel Gonzaga, George Satorapolus, etc. you will quickly realize how all of these fighters training Jiu Jitsu in a BJJ Gi as part of their training schedule. When you ask them why they do so, they will tell you the technique learned from training in the Jiu Jitsu Gi is what makes them do it. Tradition is always a great thing to keep in life.
