I am here to discuss two modern martial arts. One is judo, and the second one is BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu). Though judo is simplified as compared to BJJ but I am here willing to discuss their effectiveness as a game and as self-defence. I remember, as a kid, I was willing to learn judo for self-defence. So, if we compare both martial arts as self-defence, then I would rank the BJJ high as compared to judo. Especially after the ban of leg grabbing in the judo, it has become ineffective for street defence. If we see technicalities, judo throw components
still sound interesting for newbies but it relies a lot on gi grip. BJJ offers no-gi which help learners become perfect in grappling like sambo and wrestling.
On the other hand, if we compare them in the sports section then judo is an Olympic sport and costs you cheaper in terms of training classes. It is also a proper standing self-defence technique if you are master in judo. Similarly, many experts also suggest judo as better
martial arts for a beginner, especially kids because it is well-established with several tests and syllabus. However, when it comes to real combating and worse self-defence situation, then BJJ actually beats the judo.
By the way, what are your views about martial arts like judo and BJJ? Do you think they are still much useful? How would you compare these two advanced martial arts?
