    going from jjj to bjj

    alright i just recently started with my jujitsu/judo training within the last month. I'm fairly concerned because in around 2 years i'll be moving away for college to a larger town with a bjj school. So, how difficult is it for a guy with around 2 years of small class jjj/judo training to go over to straight large gym bjj training?

    How much of it is Judo?

    I don't mean "oh, we do Judo throws with compliant partners", I mean how often do you actually spar and what are the rules?

    Depends on what your judo newaza skill is like and it depends on what the BJJ school is like. Don't worry about it and just go if you want.

    BJJ is extremely good on the ground.

    you have 2 years to worry about this. Don't worry so much and concentrate on what you're training now. Pick up some books and videos and study. Practice with your friends and classmates and ask your current instructor about ground grappling; he might be able to help you.

    I've done 5 years of JJJ & just started (as in 3 sessions so far) BJJ.
    The locking principles are the same but some ar alot harder 2 get on then you'd think. You will prob learn some things you can use (brake falls etc), we did short (around 1min rounds) bits of rolling @ the start of our JJJ sessions & it has helped some . Depending on how you train it means you have some advantages but I've found it very different, both have plusses though & they are easy to combine.

    Got 5 years & some other training here so with 2 years this is prob fair.

    the jj class im in right now is actually heavily focused on grappling, and in both the jj and judo classes theres around a half hour randori at the end of every class. I go to a class of each once a week.

    you will be fine

    but dont expect to be "good" at bjj just because you have done some grappling in jjj, bjj is generally in a different league

    six months of embarrasing defeat.

    then you go back and own your old sensei

    ps - once you learn about positional dominance you may actually be able to apply some of those funky wrist locks on someone rowdier than your grandmother.
