    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How is BJJ different from Judo?

    One of my students called me earlier and told me he had been invited to a BJJ tournament. I asked him if he would be able to strike to the face and he told me no. So my question is. How is this different than Judo? besides the no gi thing.

    And yes, i did search.

    Here's a link that should help - http://www.bjj.org/tournaments/rules.html

    Biggest differences between Judo & BJJ tourneys (IMO) are that in Judo you can win outright with one good throw or a holddown for 25 seconds - plus there are no leg locks.

    Hmm! So why not call it Brazilian Judo instead of Ju-jutsu.

    BJJ is basically ground judo, or at least thats how i see it. Alot of the subs in BJJ are found in judo as well. Instead of focusing on throws, eventhough bjj does have some, we focus more on the ground game. BJJ came from a mixture of judo and jujutsu.

    if you look at the bjj.org site, which has already been posted, you should find alot of information on the subject.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    This is the important bit.

    If your student intends to compete, it's not so important to understand the difference between judo and BJJ, it's more important to understand the rules of the specific tournament.

    The rules for different BJJ tournaments, that I've seen, you can do plain old judo, just don't expect to score the same, or even win.

    As an aside, I'm under the impression that BJJ competition rules are largely not standardized; at least, not as standard as the IJF rules.
