this may seem trivial but here it goes: i've trained no-gi for almost 2 years before. the last 7 months however i trained with the gi exclusively. i know they say that training with the gi can help improve your no-gi game, how true is this? i'm planning to do no-gi in octoberi. i'm fairly athletic & lanky & it has helped me alot with my no-gi game & it was frustrating as hell during the 1st couple of months training with the gi exclusively. have you guys noticed some changes? are they dramatic to the extent that you'll act like the double rainbow guy? can't wait for october. i train in a judo club hence the strict gi policy & i'm looking forward to do bjj again.
