    When did JJJ become a recommending factor for MMA training?
    That's right... never.

    Judo is great, but you're unlikely to get much focus on MMA from it. Your chances are far better with bjj.

    Holy crap.
    I love judo but these results are ridiculous. Straight bjj isn't all you need for mma but it is a lot closer than straight judo.

    What's wrong with you people? Hell even many of the top japanese guys do bjj.

    If your goal is MMA, train fucking MMA!

    If your goal is crosstraining. Train what supplements what you're lacking skill in the most!

    If your goal is to post on bullshido, don't ever post anything about BJJ and Judo, or a shitfest will commence.

    No.
    Nice stawman arguments though.

    Question: How much no-gi time does your judo school do?
    Question: How many bjj schools have you visited in Sydney?
    Question: How many of your fellow judoka train for MMA?
    Question: How many of the guys at the bjj schools did?

    If your goal is mma, bjj (or a good MMA school) is far more likely to meet your needs than is judo. Judo is great and all, but it isn't a panacea. It certainly doesn't have the contemporary ties to mma that bjj certainly does.

    I understand the point you are trying to make. Really, I do.

    MMA is not a new concept. Mixing styles is nothing new. It occured long before the UFC or Pride started up. But you are right. BJJ schools tend to be more focused on the MMA scene and offer gi and no-gi classes to assist in this. I was just trying to say Judo can greatly assist someone training for MMA.

    Now just for the record I'm not knocking down BJJ. They are kings on the ground even my couch admits that. For me Judo is the perfect compromise. I get all the striking and hard contact sparring I need from Kyokushin. But I realised grappling was too important to ignore. I looked into some BJJ schools. But the closest one was 40 mins drive from my house in traffic. And they wanted $95- per month.

    On the other hand I've got a great Judo club 5 mins from my house and all they want is $32- per month. No thanks. Judo will do just fine.

    Do you post points or just non-sequiters and strawmen?
    Really, I'm curious as I'm new here.

    There's a reason he's got "village idiot" as a custom title.



    Interestingly, this whole discussion may be moot. I wanted to do MMA, but couldn't find a gym within 3 hours of me. Turns out a buddy of my I hadn't talked to in a while knows the bouncer at his favorite club competes in MMA (he's 2-3 on sherdog). He's going to find out where the guy trains.

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Find out where he trains but try rolling with both his classes and the bjj no-gi classes.
    The difference may be drastic.

    I'm thinking I could see how good the MMA standup is, but on the ground I'm out of my element.

    As a total newb how would I be able to tell if there is a difference, drastic or not?

    When you roll pay attention to what sorts of techniques they use. It will be a little misrepresentative because you're a noob but there still may be things you can pick up on. If you get someone in your guard do they can opener you, go for leglocks or work to pass the guard? That will be a big key. Another good diagnostic would be how tight they stay but you probably wouldn't be able to pick up on that.
    Do they use strength and athleticism or technique?
    Another thing you could do is bait things like armbars and see how well they pick up on them.
