    judo strength

    If a judoka is significantly smaller then an attacker would a judoka be able to throw them? Also, what do you guys think about judo in general for self denfense compared to bjj?

    Judoka throw bigger people around all the time. Untrained people of any size are relatively easy to throw even for people like me with crappy Judo.

    Judo is just as effective as BJJ for self defense, in some situations more so, in other situations less. There are times when from a legal standpoint throwing someone headfirst into the concrete might prove to be a bad idea, so that can be a disadvantage for Judo, but hitting someone with a planet is definitely a good way to keep them from attacking you.

    There are so many techniques in judo such as sweeps (de-ashi barai) or reaps (osoto gari) that rely very little on strength at all. I would suggest that if by 'throw' you mean take them to the floor then the answer is always yes.

    Also, Judo is generally considered better for self defence.. BJJ is generally considered better for fighting other martial artists.

    I think the general rule of thumb is something like: I good big guy will usually beat a good small guy. Strength is an important factor.

    Judo it seems to me will have better stand up kuzushi, if you can entry for o soto gari that takes their balance properly, then its not too hard to manhandle them into a choke, I haven't done BJJ, but I understand they dont play much standing up, but being able to stand and know how to apply what bodyweight you have against some elses posture is really handy.

    I'm the second biggest guy in my judo class. I get thrown all the time by the smallest guy. He's a brown belt and I'm a white belt. Sometimes my ego is bruised, often my body is bruised.

    Thanks for the input its much appriciated :)
    Do any of you have examples of situations where you have used judo for self defense?

    I'm asking because I'm comsidering joining a local place called spokane judo club and bjj spokane. bjj spokane is far and expensive whereas spokane judo club is reviewed on bullshido Spokane Judo Club - No BS MMA and Martial Arts and is only $20 per month and its close to where I live. The review of spokane judo club sounds impressive for the low price.

    The most important lesson in judo is ukemi: the art of falling. These skills are fundamental if you want to learn judo without sustaining any injury. They come in handy in real life if you were to take a fall these reflexes will kick in. There are many stories about judokas falling from speeding motorbikes, rooftop ceillings, with nothing but scratches.
