Here's a guy (Enrico Cocco) that has never worn a gi in his life, beating someone who says that 'unless you train in the gi, you can't possibly get good in Jiu Jitsu'. However, all reverence and respect is due to Shawn Williams, he is one of the greats, but I hope this makes him rethink his views on No Gi training.

Roger Gracie becomes candid about the transfer from BJJ to MMA.

“70-80 percent of what I do in submission competition I couldn’t do in an MMA fight. The moves will expose you to getting hit. So you have to limit your moves to the ones you can do safely where you don’t get hit.”

Leo Santos, 7 time black belt Mundial champion, on grappling without the gi.

DW: With your grappling specifically, what changes were the hardest to make?

LS: I think my biggest difficulty was to have no grips to hold. I was considered a very technical fighter, so I always relied on my grips as they are very valuable in BJJ. But, when I took off the gi, I felt so lost, so it took me a while to make changes in my game.

DW: How often did you train without the gi before you started in MMA, and how often do you train with the gi now?

LS: I had not trained much without the gi, since there weren’t very many No-Gi championships. I dedicated myself to training in the gi, because I had more competitions and I loved fighting championship Jiu Jitsu. I started training more no-gi when I came to fight MMA, but sometimes I still put on the gi for training and to teach some classes. It helps me to relax and review some techniques.
