    My Judo coach (who also coaches BJJ) says something along that line: techniques are similar (if not identical) but the different goals in the rule-sets mean the focus of training changes.

    What would you say are the practical differences between BJJ and Judo outside of a sports context? Like, as martial art mostly?

    Its difficult to magically remove the two from their competition rule-set, as those rules strongly influence how the two are trained. I would say that as "in the mean streets" martial arts they give the same general advantage: take downs, clinch and ground grappling, and submissions. The "self defense" portion of BJJ has always looked a lot like Judo's Goshin Jitsu (self defense) kata to me. Judo has more Japanese culture and (depending on the dojo) formality if you are into that. BJJ (in my experience) is a little more laid back a training environment. In the end, most effective grappling looks pretty similar to other effective grappling.

    I ended up with Judo because it was cheaper, closer, and I felt really comfortable with the people I trained with. So if you don't know what you want to do for sure take some of the recommendations here, try some clubs and schools (most places have trial lessons) and go with where you feel most comfortable.

    Having done both, I would say with Judo your going to feel more comfortable with your ability to stay standing. Your less likely to get tripped, thrown, or knocked down.
    You can dump someone onto the ground and run away probably a bit easier than your average BJJ player. Oh and Judo tends to have a lot more conditioning than BJJ.

    A BJJ person on the other hand has the advantage of well being comfortable in some very bad positions to be in on the ground. They are also as a result more able to get themselves up off of the ground and run away.

    Both arts include each others elements though. So a Judo guy that ends up being mounted in a street fight still has a fairly damn decent chance at escaping it and the BJJ guy does have training in take downs and take down defense.

    I feel like I need to learn both now. Kenya has a Judo sports scene, no idea how decent or otherwise it is. But for now I'll use Teh DE3RdLy aHkEEDO for streets...lol, I'm kidding. But I feel comfortable grappling on the ground, as my stand up is mainly Muay Thai strikes, which also needs some re-training. But I'd love to do standing throws...I'll see if I can do Judo and BJJ. Combined with some Muay Thai, my overall game should be well rounded. But I'd like to fully go into one art only, a grappling art. A man who chases two dinners always goes hungry.

    Judo and BJJ go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly.

    That sounds disgusting, how would you even eat that? Make the jelly then dump a spoon full of peanut butter on it? Are you saying I should just stick to one of the two?

    ow....I get it now, sorry, my bad. Jelly here is fruit flavored gelatine eaten as a dessert at functions. My bad again. So jam and peanut sandwich, I guess that means Goodlun is saying I should do BOTH bjj and judo. That's cool.

    Mixed Martial Arts

    You can give a try to MMA if you want to learn different forms of martial arts. Not even you will get to know about different techniques but also become physically strong.

    In this way you will be able to know the different forms and can continue by selecting any one or more forms.
