Plus, you see it in the amateurs that even brown belts in BJJ get KTFO, aren't good at takedowns, holding the positions, etc. I think a lot of that is because they train with a gi instead of gi-less grappling all the time.
That’s a good point. I remember starting to really notice the collars of people I saw throughout the day, thinking ‘yeah, I could choke that guy!’
