    Im going to have my trial class. The answer is yes, im taking judo for self defense purposes. Im looking to be well rounded and efficient. I used to be a kung fu nut rider until I found this website. They teach kickboxing where I take escrima so my striking is average and now I want to dabble in grappling. By the way what is the difference between Judo groundwork and bjj groundwork?

    I hear you, man. I just found a non-profit judo program (fully registered / aligned with Judo Ontario and Judo Canada) close to my place. Cost = 25$/month! Considering how much BJJ, JJJ / Can-Ryu, MMA (etc.) schools generally charge in my area, this is a smoking deal.

    It more or less comes down to rule set Judo is mainly standing and BJJ is mainly groundwork.

    So players become more specialist in the area they need the most a Judoka won't win many matches if they can't are not good during standing but they can get away with being poor on the ground by defending until there stood up by the ref. I am sure there is a BJJ equivalent

    That's an oversimplification. The ruleset tends to focus competitive players that way but there are judoka with good ground skills and BJJ players who are good standing. BJJ is less restrictive in the ruleset, so there are more locks and so forth that are legal. The thread you pointed out has more details.

    Judo's always a good choice, and Judo is pretty popular in Quebec. You will not lack for competitions or clubs to choose from if you stick with it.

    Generally speaking, my observation is BJJ players emphasize working from the guard a lot and submissions are more important. Judo players emphasize pins and working from the scissors (guard) isn't really their thing.
