Hey I am looking to train No Gi jiu jitsu somewhere in Korea. I asked someone who trains at Frankl's school and he said they don't train much no gi there. Does anyone know where they have no gi classes? Or an open mat when people roll no gi?

Thanks

You may want to check out the Martial Arts sticky above.

Most places won't frown on no-gi sparring after class, but unless you go to an MMA school, I don't know any gym that specializes in nogi grappling.

http://www.bjj-asia.com has a good list of academies in Korea and all over Asia.

Where in Korea do you want to train?

Sorry I should have mentioned that, Seoul. I would train gi its just that I didn't bring one and the amount time I'll be here it doesn't make sense to buy one or ship mine.

Brother, you can buy a really cheap Korean brand judo gi. They cost like 40 bucks. Or I'll sell you mine which I barely used for like 10. They work just the same. My older one is still in good condition despite 2 years of heavy use.

I agree. They have a very nice facility and the instructors are really good. Friday's, the focus is on BJJ. I recommend it to anyone interested. A lot of fun and even some beer drinking after we roll!
