Do judo classes regularly teach no-gi? I was just wondering.
Naked judo, I'm in!
Not quite what I meant, but here, enjoy this:

No Gi Judo?
Nu-Do? (gets it? it sounds like Nude and judo combined ahahahhahaa)
I've never seen a judo use no-gi regularly for anyone except beginners when theres too many of them and not enough gis.
However Goshin Jutsu may be no-gi based. But i'm not sure...
I don't want to get started on the gi vs. no-gi argument.
I've had a rant at both FOD and Chadley about it before
The Hayastan guys do nogi, but otherwise usually no

That was really interesting! Thanks Sifu Ben.
One of the blokes I do nogi with is also a Judo blackbelt and he runs a mixed gi/nogi class for MMA folks.
I'm jealous! What's it like?
I've never done the class, it's on a Saturday morning over in Liverpool and I'm not good at mornings and the extra cost of travelling over kind of put me off as well! When I've rolled with him though, his nogi technique is excellent. I had been working up the motivation to go to the class when my shoulder went on my last year.
Gah, have you healed yet?
I'm back weightlifting and hoping to start nogi and/or Judo again in the next couple of months.
Not usually but if you switch the grips to more catch wrestling style the throws work. Just takes practice.

Awesome! Take one of the no-gi classes for me when you have the time and tell me how it is, pleeaaasee? There's cake in it for you
Tai tosh you just switch to headlock instead
Well if there's cake in it for me, I'll have to see what I can do! It might be a while off though, as I want to easy back into training with one class a week initially.
Icing on cake.
Aha, brilliant! Hope you get well son Frodocious!
Also, I'm using Google Chrome, so you are now part of my dictionary.
Chrome FTW! Although I'm not quite sure whether to be honoured or terrified at being part of your dictionary...
Well I've still got to put in a description, any suggestions?
