How do you learn wrestling

Nogi (BJJ)
Submission wrestling

What's behind Nogi BJJ | Grappling | Submission Wrestling?

Nogi (also: grappling or submission wrestling) is the type of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that is practiced without a gi (= kimono). Just like BJJ, it is a purely wrestling, highly technical martial arts sport, which also enables smaller and weaker people to control physically superior opponents and force them to give up.

The secret of the Nogi BJJ is to cover the dangerous striking distance as quickly as possible and to shift the fight to the ground. Since most people have absolutely no idea how to defend themselves on the ground, one can easily control, reposition and surrender a physically stronger opponent with an understanding of position and leverage. For this, the grappler mainly uses lever and choke techniques.

BJJ Lifestyle in Munich

BJJ, with or without a kimono, is not only the most effective martial arts in the world, but also one of the central aspects of life for many athletes, a real added value and support in all situations and a key to lasting happiness and joie de vivre. We are convinced of this and have therefore made it our task to share our passion for BJJ with Munich and as many people as possible here!

We have tried to summarize the reasons why BJJ has this enormous potential in the following blog article: “Life Hack: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu”

The direct line to the source of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

We are a proud member of the Pound for Pound team under Sergio “Canudo” Zimmermann, with whom we are in constant and close contact. Canudo is a world-class athlete and role model on and off the mat. Our roots lead directly back to Rio to the great Carslon Gracie team. We respect this connection with pride, at the same time we maintain a contemporary, sensible relationship with one another and forego titles or rituals.

Graduations take place with us of course without any fees and are based on the individual performance of the athlete.

Please wear the Gi in which YOU feel comfortable. The main thing is that it is intact and clean 🙂
