Crossroads Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

No-Gi Submission Grappling


Learn Jiu-Jitsu For MMA

The No-Gi grappling for MMA class at Crossroads follows the same format as our Advanced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program and designed for people who are interested in competing in MMA or No-Gi Submission Grappling Competitions.

Training without the Gi or Kimono requires certain positional adjustments to your Jiu-jitsu. In our no-gi grappling class you will learn how to adjust your body positioning, gripping and strategy for training without the GI.


Training no-gi bjj is a great way to develop more fluid attacks and more effective submissions. When you are training with the Gi there is more friction, which makes it much harder to escape. Without the gi there is must less friction and therefor your submissions have to be much Tighter. In our no-gi BJJ class you will learn make these adjustments

Training without the Gi is a good supplement to Gi training and while you will learn all the basics of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu in the Fundamentals class, if you are interested in learning competing in mixed martial arts events or No-Gi submission grappling tournaments it is an excellent idea to get used to training without the gi as a Gi isn’t worn for MMA competition. Training No-Gi will help you develop the transition speed and helps you work on control and submissions.


I started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in 2007, back when Dustin was a purple belt. Dustin took me under his wing and helped me by giving me private lessons and working with me during class times. It was clear even back then that Dustin would become a brilliant instructor of this great sport. Many of the fundamentals that Dustin showed me are still part of my game today.

Crossroads BJJ provides a great learning atmosphere for any skill level, while also testing your body and spirit. I started at Crossroads knowing nothing about BJJ, but with Dustin’s instruction I’ve improved significantly, and continue to get better each class.  Hard work definitely pays off, and you will be pushed to your limits while increasing your skill sets at Cross Roads BJJ.
