    Sport Ju Jitsu

    I recently found about Sport Ju Jitsu and was really curious about it, I found this place in Portsmouth (Gosport) UK. http://www.ukjujitsu.net/
    The questions I have since I only found out about sport jujitsu recently is:

    Is sport ju jitsu a lighter version of MMA?
    The dojo I mentioned above is a member of http://www.bjjagb.com/ are they any good?
    And final and most important is sport ju jitsu (or the actual style this guy teaches to be more exact) any good?

    The full name is silly and the best thing about the web site is the music. So whatever.

    This would scare me: http://ukjujitsu.com/lineage-chart.pdf

    See how one of Martin Roger's instructors is a 10th Dan in... wait for it... Spirit Combat?

    The way that I understand it (at least in the U.S.), Sport Jujitsu is just a rule set under which various Jujitsu practitioners can compete. It's not a unique martial art; it's just a set of rules for running tournaments.

    Don't worry, you'll be fine. He is a genuine very high Dan Grade in Trad Ju Jitsu so focus on that. If you hear reference to Chinese Medicine theory factored in, ignore it.

    I'm now outside the BJJA GB owing to some politicking last year.

    As said, you'll be fine. Go for it.

    More or less.

    It's no guarantee of quality or ability in anything non-fictional. Some individual clubs within it are all right to good.

    It's alive, though under a slightly silly ruleset. What are your goals?

    If I was in that area I'd probably train at http://www.gym01.com/ or http://www.kamonbjj.com/

    So I am kinda new to the forum, BUT I ran into a guy the other week talking about just this. He seemed nice enough, but then started talking about his background a little... Master this, grandmaster that, healing arts, etc.

    Then it dawned on my what his "lineage" was.... i.e. Leon Jay... you know the "hit you without touching dood"... anyways at this point i began the trolling... "So is sports jujitsu anything bjj?" "Are there any MMA guys that do sport jujitsu?", etc. It was pretty funny to hear the responses. There are probably guys out there that do something thats fairly "combative and live" but with these types being the game I'd be hesitant.

    Besides, why do "sport jujitsu" when you can do Sambo or even dare I say a legit, MMA class with bjj/judo and boxing/muay thai guys?

    I've fought under sport Ju Jitsu rules, I found the ruleset to be extremely restrictive, (punches to the face allowed, but not to the front of the face) also limited contact.

    Edit: That said, I've only fought once, its the only competition I've ever fought in, and the guy would probably have beaten me handily even if I didn't keep punching him in the nose and losing points.

    I am sure it is!... I guess what I am saying is that why do start a "new" set of rules, "martial art", etc. When the thing already exists... it seems a little odd to me and somewhat like a cop out...

    If you want a proven combat sport and set of rules that involves kicking and punching (to the face) and grappling then why not go with something that already exists like Sambo or MMA? I just dont understand? Why reinvent the wheel?
