Apex MMA: No-Gi Grappling

The Modern Grappling Art

No-Gi Grappling Program Details

No-gi grappling is a form of martial arts that does not rely on clothing for gripping or submissions. Many people think that no-gi grappling is more difficult than traditional Jiu Jitsu because there are no handles or sleeves to grip onto. Others find no-gi to be more natural and fluid, making it easier to apply submissions. No matter what your opinion is, there are several reasons to start training no-gi grappling.

Benefits of No-Gi Grappling

It’s great exercise

It’s a form of self defence

You’ll be part of a new community

It develops your problem solving skills

It develops your ability to deal with pressure

For one, no-gi grappling is a great way to get in shape. Because you are not relying on clothes for gripping, you will use more energy and burn more calories during a no-gi session. In addition, no-gi grappling allows you to train in a more realistic environment. If you ever find yourself in a street fight or self-defense situation, you will not have the luxury of a gi to help you out. As a result, practicing no-gi will better prepare you for real-world situations.

Finally, no-gi grappling is simply more fun for some people. The fast pace and lack of grips can make for a more exciting and dynamic experience. If you are looking for a new challenge, no-gi grappling may be the perfect activity for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need any experience?

One of the great things about martial arts is that it is accessible to people of all ages and experience levels. Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned athlete, there is a martial art that is right for you. Of course, if you have no experience, you may initially feel intimidated. But there is no need to worry. Our beginner classes will introduce you to the rules in a safe and welcoming manner.

Do I Need To Be Fit To Start?

We have classes for all skill levels and fitness types. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate or advanced practitioner - we'll make sure to keep your needs in mind during class! Our technique drilling sessions are coupled with rest rounds, so everyone has enough time to catch up on oxygen while still getting an intense workout without feeling too beaten down by it. If there's something about training at an intensity which isn't quite working out just how prefer, then let one of our coaches know because they can adjust certain aspects depending on what works best tailored towards YOUR specific wants/needs.

How Safe is Training?

One of our most popular classes is sparring. It's not compulsory, but it usually doesn't hurt to take advantage! We have very few injuries here at APEX MMA because people are always prepared and cautious when they come in contact with others during training sessions as they recognise them as teammates.

What do I need to Start?

In your first class, please wear a tight-fitting shirt and shorts with no zips or pockets. You will also need a water bottle, and towel and we will provide a loan of a Gi for trial classes.
