    Also, training method. Traditional Japanese Jiujitsu did not have randori (or at least it was very rare). Brazilian jiu-jitsu took its training methods from judo, so it has lots and lots of randori.

    JJJ is more in the closet than BJJ. it's like homos in boston vs. homos in san francisco.

    I've never trained Japanese JJ but I've worked out with guys that do. It seems to me that they don't emphasize 'position first' the way BJJ and judo do.

    Talking to a guy at BJJ who used to take JJJ, he said he just drilled a lot of standing wrist and arm locks. Like mcg said, they didn't stress position really at all. You were just supposed to twist his arm arm and assume they stayed standing there.

    But, if I'm not mistaken, isn't Carlos Newton trained in JJJ and that's where he gets his grappling?

    I'm just relaying what the guy told me, so sorry if I didn't describe something right. He made it out like all he learned and drilled were a lot of defensive wrist locks.

    Like you said though, I'm sure that different school do things different ways and I know there is more to JJJ than just wrist locks, and there is more to wrist locks than just standing there holding hands.

    Freddy "position first" in BJJ an Judo means controlling the position of the other person's body (ie pinning them)

    Isn't it the sparring level rather than techniques? I've heard that lot's of trad jj in the US tend to avoid hard sparring and leave that to the judo guys.

    Didn't your mom crastrate you when you were a kid? Oh, you still are kid...I'll go kick your mom out of my bed and give her the instruction.*

    "If no one minds cross-forum linking....." If it were anybody but sherdog I might not mind but most of the snot nosed littled brain dead fuckers over there couldn't discuss the differance between black and white let alone give you an unbiased out look between Brazillian Jujitsu and Japanese Juijitsu.
