  • No Gi Training/Submission wrestling/MMA in So. Cal

    I live in Orange County and I introduced a friend of mine to BJJ but training with him. However, when I invited him to my class, he didn't like training because of the Gi. I tried to find him a grappling school, or anything that teaches groundfighting without a Gi. Anyone can help me out with any recomendations for schools or instructors?

        tell him to check out the Inosanto Academy

        Erik Paulson holds a Shoot Wrestling class down here that is basically a no gi submission grappling class. His techical knowledge blows me away and his classes are always great. He also has a Vale Tudo class on mondays which is basically all sparring (striking, grappling and vale tudo). A similar sparring class is also held on sundays by another instructor. But anyway, if your friend wants no gi freestyle training, this is definitely an option worth checking out.

          They train mostly w/o a GI

            I was disappointed to hear that your friend did not like training because of the Gi, I think if he contacts Gordon ryan he might like the training and would become a regular. I hope this helps.
