Nearly a decade teaching Jiu-Jitsu in New Jersey, retired UFC star Ricardo “Cachorrão” Almeida is big on training both in and out of the gi. According to his teachings, Gi Jiu-Jitsu training is ideal for smoothing out your guard and defenses, while No-Gi training is best for working on passes, control and submissions.
