A touch of No Gi.
For those who don't know, Brazilian Jujitsu is traditionally practiced in a Gi. It's heavy and durable, and gives a point for hand holds and levers by which grips can be broken, or and opponent can be choked. Last night I got to do a bit of no-gi sparring (which is just what it sounds like, sparring without the Gi top on), completely through circumstance but it was a lot of fun, not something I want a steady diet of, because I think the traditional is a purer form of the art, but it was still fun.
