After something like a 4 year absence I joined in with the No-Gi class on Saturday. No-Gi class is held once a week, Saturday afternoon with guys staying afterwards to join in with the Open Matt from 2pm. Usually Kim Sensei takes the class, but as ┬áhe’s injured at the moment the class was taken by Hayakawa sensei.

Even though I’m basically a beginner with No-Gi the class was really enjoyable. My Gi game is all about gripping sleeves, collars and so on so it was a bit unnerving not having them to hand, so to speak. Hayakawa sensei picked me up a few times on the best way to prevent the opponent from escaping (see picture above). Still, it was fun to spar with the freedom not using a gi gives you and I’m looking forward to the next class come Saturday.
