Triforce English Blog Update: 2/3/14 #BJJ #Tokyo #Jiujitsu

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  he’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.
