I find it interesting how divisive people are about every little subject. Instead of live and let live, and being open to the possibility that they might not be right about everything. People want to draw a line in the sand and bark across the people on the other side.
I was reading the comments this morning and noticed all of the BJJ Gi Hate. People saying how unrealistic it is, and how it’s stupid and an old tradition.
And I understand what they are talking about. When people say realistic I think they mean MMA. And in that case, I suppose the Gi is not directly realistic to an MMA fight.
However, I think for a basic fighting situation. Understanding how to manipulate clothing is realistic and useful.
The one thing I would add to this is that a lot of what we do in BJJ isn’t all that realistic or useful for a fight.
We do it though, because it’s fun.
And so, stop drawing the line in the sand about which one is better. Gi Brazilian Jiu-jitsu or No Gi Grappling.
It’s all good. It’s all grappling. You should practice both.
