Learn Nogi Techniques In Oklahoma City…

Summer is here now, which means that things will be heating up more as well as the big nogi grappling tournaments are closing in on us Lovato’s School of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA will be taking off the gi’s to train alot more often.

The two biggest nogi grappling  championships in the U.S. takes place at the IBJJF nogi World Championships, and the American Nationals nogi championships this year.

While nearly the same sport, submission wrestling is a bit different than just being brazilian jiu jitsu without the gi. There is more wrestling involved, things are slicker and alot more slippery, you have to adapt to locks and hooks for grips since there is nogi to grab onto, and it is generally a bit more fast paced. Training in the gi helps your nogi to be more technical and training nogi helps alot of aspects of your gi game as well and its important to train in both grappling arts to really gain the full value of brazilian jiu jitsu as a whole and it’s important to have the knowledge of how to change your game up for both situations.

If you live in Oklahoma and would love to learn brazilian jiu jitsu and nogi grappling then come to, Rafael Lovato Jr ‘s Lovato’s School of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA today where you can learn from current UFC fighters, multiple ADCC submission wrestling veterans and World Champions bjj fighters.

Demetrious Johnson Will Fight For Flyweight Title. . .

Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall had to wait three months to play back their first fight. The flyweight fight took place at UFC on FX 3 at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla. The bout served as the main event, which was broadcast on FX following a preliminary card that aired on Facebook and FUEL TV. The fight was the first flyweight main event in UFC history.

Much like the pair’s first fight, a controversial draw at UFC on FX 2 in March, it was Johnson who controlled the fight early. Demetrious Johnson landed a takedown a minute into the opening found. But McCall didn’t stay on the canvas long, a theme he would keep throughout the fight any time Johnson was able to put him on the mat.

Demtrious Johnson now moves into a flyweight title fight against Joseph Benavidez later this year. Demetrious Johnson picked up his third win in the UFC, with the lone loss being a bantamweight title fight against Dominick Cruz. McCall now goes back to the drawing board, but no doubt remains a top contender in the promotion’s new flyweight division.

If you live in Oklahoma City and are interested in learning the same techniques as used by Demetrious Johnson, come to Lovato’s School of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA. Take up our 30 Day Free Trial and get started today!
