The friction of the go will take some getting used to. Also you'll be surprised how much you can use the go for offense and defense.

Also collar chokes


Yeah, the collar opens up a brand new world. It kind of adds another dimension to grappling to choke from other angles than just rear naked.

in my opinion. no gi you have to agressively go after the submission, gi is all about the set up:position before submission.

grip fight, you'll learn tricks of using your opponents grips to your advantage eventually, but till then just don't accept some one getting a good grip on you.

i also find positional escapes much, much more difficult in the gi so dont accept someone getting a dominant position on you.

it's easier to defend submissions with the help of the gi so don't worry too much about not getting the tap. try of course, but be content to get a good control in dominant position and slowly force openings from there.

and finally, please wash your gi and belt after every class. i know gis are expensive but buy a couple: you and your training partners health are more important.
