Can someone educate me on the main differences between Jujitsu and Brazilian Jujitsu please.
Both of them are self defence arts, but Brazillian ju jitsu is more about ground fighting (more judo stuff). I think anyway. See what you can find in the wikipedia

BJJ is 95% or so ground based. Some takedowns are drilled in classes though (Sport fights start on the feet)

JJ has more stand up involved with stricking and weapon defence (I dont do jujitsu, so im not certain. I do know though that JJ does not cover ground fighting as much as BJJ)

Another major difference are the lessons. JJ has some sort of scenario based training with set manouvres and basically one guy getting thrown about from what i saw.

In BJJ its full contact, full force sparring, where you can apply techniques spontaniously against someone resisting and applying their own game against you.

BJJ is also a key part in cage or MMA fighting (without the Gi it becomes submission wrestling), and has supposedly been shown to have beaten other Martial arts.

Oh and people must remember that however good BJJ is in cage/MMA fights, in real life its just not practical to start grappling someone on the road/pavement (especially if he has friends who kick your spine while you're busy grappling).

What if you find yourself on the ground in a fight? Surely then, BJJ will come useful.. We do groundfighting, (but I'm a JJ person) and I think most of the ground fighting stuff is really useful

then I carry out my normal skills . I said 'if' for a reason .i.e. condition. Like when one gets jumped, he might end up on the ground.
Anyways, I dont really have a concern/issue since I do ju jitsu and not brazillian ju jitsu. Ground fighting cannot be completely written off IMO

Sorry, I was just being pedantic. I'm actually very interested in trying some Jujitsu, I'm just not a fan of ground fighting at all.

Most street fights i've seen have ended up on the ground, so i suppose BJJ does have its qualities.

That's ok..
I don't like ground fighting much either, though I see how some of the techniques can be useful..

You SHOULD try jitsu (well, I would say that :p: ), it's great

Hmm I've watched lots of JuJitsu training sessions and after most of the techniques both attacker and defender end up on the ground.

No, most of the time, the attacker ends on the ground + it depends on the throw.. but im postive the attacker MOSTLY ends on the ground

Hey everybody, 1st time poster on this soc-thread.

I've been doing shotokan karate for a few months now - tis great, and I'm loving it.

However, something I've been thinking about after hearing different opinions.

In a real fight, a normal street fight say with one or more thugs on a street at night, how useful is it?

Thanks,

Nathan

Anything can be useful if you know how to use it well, and instinctively. Thats the key word, 'instinct'.

'Commitment' would be another one. Shotokan won't do much for you if your heart's not really in it 100%, or you don't put the effort in to pratise regularly. Then again, I imagine that this applies to most martial arts.
