    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Is Judo more effective in street fighting than BJJ?

    I posted a thread like this earlier but for some reason all replies were erased, and I was accused of promoting crappling? Can someone please offer me an explaination? I was asking a sincere question and received some sincere responses, all of them were erased.

    I believe the reason this happened was because you created the thread in DHS, a heavily moderated forum where you can only ask highly technical questions.

    You need to pay attention where you make your threads.

    As for your question, meh. I remember you said that you were training for street fighting and not the cage.

    What the heck does that mean? Are you planning to go and fight on the streets? What about bar fights?

    Rather than entertaining your question, I rather know the motivation and rationality (or irationality) behind it.

    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

    Where should of I posted such a question?

    I will.

    I am not planning on going out, grabbing people, and using Judos throws to kick their ass.

    What about bar fights?
    Well, if I ever got in a bar fight, I would use my training to defend myself from the person wanting to kick the living **** out of me.

    Rather than entertaining your question, I rather know the motivation
    To find out if Judo is better for street fighting than BJJ.

    and rationality (or irationality) behind it.
    Becoming a good street fighter so I can successfully defeat a street opponent, which I would only use if I was attacked first.

    So go out and get into a bunch of street fights. Until then, STFU.

    RMA> It seems you need somebody to be nice to you. If you have a "newbie" question, this is the correct subforum to post in. If you're worried about the seriousness of the responses you'll get, post in "newbietown." In there, people aren't allowed to troll you.

    When you ask, "Is X better then Y in street fighting" on this website, you'll be opening up a can of worms. Any art that is effective in sport will be effective on the street. Any art that claims to be "too deadly" to practice for sport will not be able to be sufficiently trained in order to actually be effective. (search for adn read up on the term "aliveness").

    You have made the right first step on asking "Judo vs BJJ" rather then "_ing _un vs. Akido," and you can't really go wrong with either. Judo and BJJ are both good arts; they both have their place, and are both effective. BJJ more so on the ground, Judo more so on throws. It really depends on your individual preference. Go and visit schools for each type, and decide which school you'd rather attend. Any place you're willing to go and train in will be more important than what some internet people tell you; the more willing you are to train, the better off you'll be, regardless of the art.

    As some one who recently (and is still feeling the effects from) getting his sternum cracked or sprained or whatever from a Judo throw I can say yes that **** hurts when done with mean intent.

    an honest answer? i'd say yes, by the smallest fraction. judo has the potential to end a fight in an instant (getting driven into any surface that isn't a mat fucking huuuuurts). and the ground work they do, while not the best and most technical, is enough to overwhelm the average person easily and get you in a dominant position to GnP the **** out of them.

    bjj trains their take downs which would work as well, and they would dominate ground position.


    i wouldn't train one or the other for "street fighting". train because you like training it, train both. who cares.

    They both have their strengths, and each would probably and up winning the fight in a different way. But they'd both get the job done, and that's all that fucking matters.
