As MMA grows in popularity, more and more people are lead to believe that training jiu-jitsu without the gi is the only way to effectively prepare for a street fight, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In this video, Ryron and Rener explain how people rarely walk around topless or in rash-guards, and then they demonstrate how regular street clothing, from hoodies to t-shirts and everything in between, can be used for OR against you in a real street-fight situation. The bottom line is: if you don’t train at least 50% in the gi, be prepared to get choked by someone who does.
