NO GI JIU JITSU
No Gi Jiu Jitsu is the second variation of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. While similar in many ways to the traditional style wearing the kimono, No Gi has some very specific differences and challenges of its own. This form of Jiu Jitsu is practiced in spats or board-shorts and a rash-guard or t-shirt which eliminates the concept of using the Gi as a weapon against your opponent, and therefore carries with it a different set of grips to control your opponent. Many people feel that it is a bit faster paced than it's original variation with the Gi, but the truth is that both arts should be practiced to improve its counterpart.
Muay Thai, often referred to as the "Art of 8 Limbs" is a boxing style developed and made popular in Thailand. It is a striking art that includes punches, elbows, knees, kicks, clinches, and foot sweeps. Muay Thai has proven itself effective in both a sport and self-defense atmosphere.

BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a traditional martial art largely dedicated to ground-fighting or grappling. While the fight does begin standing, much like the popular sport of Judo, the aim is to bring your opponent to a position of complete control and submission on the ground. This control and eventual submission can come by way of various joint locks and/or chokeholds. Many practitioners vouch that it is the ideal martial art to subdue or overcome an opponent who is larger and/or stronger than you.
