    German Ju-Jutsu vs Brazilia JJ?

    Hi,
    I've recently found information about the German Ju-Jutsu (a type of jiu-jitsu practised in Germany, surprise, surprise) and I was wondering how does it differ from, let's call it, more 'international' jiu-jitsu- like Gracie or (general) Brazilian JJ. Any thoughts?

    Well first it's practiced by people over the average height of a grasshopper. Also it's more efficient, but only when used to subjugate.

    In seriousness it's probably just rebranded BJJ. Calling it German ju-jutsu is just marketing.

          I was just in Germany last month, and there were many (Brazilian) Jiu Jitsu gyms available. I never heard of German JJ.....maybe there's a reason for that?

              German Ju-Jutsu dates back to the 1960s and was the basis for JJIF's Fighting System (Also sometimes called Sport Jujitsu) rule set which is sort of an MMA lite format. It's legit in that sense, and while JJIF is a global organization I'm doubtful that many people know the sport they're competing in is a form of German Ju-Jutsu

                From what I know, styles of german jj, british jj etc are mostly hybrid marttial arts combining techniques of judo, karate, kickboxing, bjj and whatever. Also it seems that 99% of their link to actual japanese jujutsu is through judo.

                  This being said, these styles are often very decent IF you are looking for "all-around" style with emophasis in self defence. But as half cut mentioned the particular styles often hold competitions too which usually are something like "mma light". A finnish JJ style holds competitions which are pretty much "knockdown MMA" - that is no gloves and no punches to the head but besides that pretty much everything goes, including i.e kicks and knees to the head.

                      They are. We competed in a comp last month in WV that was Sambo and Sport Jujitsu. It's a fun ruleset, but it's got some weird scoring if you go to overtime

                        At the lower levels JJIF sport jujitsu looks like tappy tappy karate with throws and submissions tossed in. I'll check to see if I still have video of it floating around. I wasn't personally a fan of the point fighting aspect of it.

                          The sport Karate style scoring was only annoying when you get into an overtime situation where it's basically sudden death. The first person to land a clean strike or a takedown wins in that situation. It happened a lot

                              It's like continuous point fighting. They don't have that reset after a scoring strike, but the level of contact is about on par with point fighting. It kind of reminds me of the level intensity you would see sparring at the gym with your team mates.
