No Gi ADCC Grappling Sydney
No Gi (Simply meaning without the big Gi jacket you often see BJJ practitioners wear) has been increasingly popular over the last 5 years in the competitive martial arts scene. This style of grappling focuses heavily on both wrestling and submission grappling, where your opponent is wearing just a Rashguard and Shorts (limiting the opportunity for gripping, quite different to Judo).

ADCC Rules Grappling
The Abu Dhabi Combat Club’s (ADCC) World Championship tournament is the pinnacle of the no gi grappling world. Originally hosted in Abu Dhabi, this tournament has been held in venues throughout the world most recently in Los Angeles in 2019. Regional qualifying tournaments narrow the field, and this results in a truly stunning match card at the World Championships. No gi ADCC has much the same rules as Brazilian jiu jitsu with the notable exception of prohibiting gripping any clothing. Competitors forego the traditional gi and compete in rash guards and shorts.
No Gi ADCC Training
No gi grappling is very much a hybrid art where wrestling heavily influences the jiu jitsu base used for scoring. Many of the techniques learned in jiu jitsu are transferable, but many are not due to the inability of using any grips on any clothing. To learn no gi grappling, one must find a gym where this fluid melding of styles is truly understood. For no gi ADCC Kogarah, look no further! Our coaching staff provides world class instruction led by 2019 ADCC World Championship competitor Keller Locke-Sodhi himself. You can’t find a better facility for no gi ADCC Sydney.
No Gi Grappling Near Me
No gi scoring varies with each tournament sponsor having its own rule set, and tournaments are sponsored on almost every continent around the world. ADCC, the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation, and the North American Grappling Association are all tournament sponsors that have slight variations on point systems, restricted submissions, or even prohibited conduct. For example, ADCC rules allow combatants to slam out of a submission attempt; however, US Grappling expressly forbids it.
In general, points are awarded for dominating positions, techniques, and overall control of your opponent. Passing the guard, obtaining knee on belly, sweeps, and takedowns are all scoring maneuvers. Most organizations award more points for sweeps or takedowns that end up past half guard.
Learn No Gi Grappling
“Should I learn no gi grappling, or should I stick to traditional Brazilian jiu jitsu?”
Every student has this question at one point in their grappling training, and if you were to ask their instructors, then you would probably get many different answers. No gi grappling is generally more fast-paced, yet jiu jitsu has been likened to a chess match. Many techniques translate, and most schools utilize the same ranking system across both disciplines. However, knowledge of how to grip an opponent’s body without the use of the gi is applicable both in no gi and gi training, and that is something that can’t be replicated if you are only training in a gi.
We encourage you to train both in the gi and without. This ensures a well rounded athlete with the added benefit of self defense mastery no matter what the opponent is wearing.
