Jujitsu or Judo for Self Defense?
Hello! I am new to the board/forum and wanted to ask everyone what their opinion is on the following:
Judo or Jujitsu for being most effective in real world self defense/street encounters?
Looking forward to your thoughts!

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Judo didn't teach me how to deal with a larger person having the top position or how to deal with strikes. However, Judo is better if you are reffering to Japanese jujitsu.
Also, this is in the wrong forum.

Erm when it comes to Judo VS BJJ its...
1 on 1: BJJ, the ground fighting is basically just a more complete version of Judo.
Streetfights (which are rarely 1on1): Judo because you can throw your opponent down and stay standing and therefore avoid getting stomped on by the guys friends while laying around in your guard like BJJ guys like to do.

If we are talking about self defense situations, then its Judo.
Japanses Ju Jitsu schools are fine except alot of them do not do much sparring.
For street self defense situations I'd still say Judo is a better choice that BJJ. Judo covers throws and takedows so much more than BJJ. If you lift somone and dump them hard on concrete, you won't need to armbar them, or worry about gaining good position trust me.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker.

But I don't wanna rule out BJJ. A decent BJJ school will teach you how to double leg someone and bring them down. I suppose for self defense matters you can get by on that.....Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker.
