Nogi Jiu-Jitsu, a martial art, has evolved over time. The original style of Jiu-Jitsu revolves around the use of the gi, or kimono, beginning in Japan and later Brazil. Specifically, Nogi Jiu-Jitsu focuses on grappling in the aspect of self defense and being a combat sport. In turn, it often becomes a lifestyle for those who stay committed from the get-go. Nogi Jiu-Jitsu promotes the fact that a smaller or weaker person can defend themselves well against a bigger and stronger person through technique and functional strength. It’s proven an amazing tool for developing the ability to effectively defend yourself, improve one’s self confidence and provide a source for healthy and significant weight loss.
