    NoGi Jiu Jitsu is a form of Jiu Jitsu without the uniform (Gi)

    The main difference between Gi and No Gi is in the clothing, Gi Jiu Jitsu you have to wear the Traditional uniform,

    In No Gi you don’t have to wear a Gi uniform. Instead, students usually wear clothing made out of elastic materials like polyester. The most popular clothes among No Gi grapplers is the rash guard but you can also wear regular shorts and a T-shirt.
