    While you have been going to Judo and BJJ classes have you not seen the difference?

    Not being an arse, just curios that you can see the differences and why?
    I don't believe in belts. There should be no ranking system for toughness.

    i love judo but the truth is wrestlings better, to the extent that thay have had to change the rules of judo to stop wrestlers putting on a gi and destroying judoka's in judo comps. im not trying to suggest judo's a complete wast of time but for mma wrestling is king.

    If you feel that way mate why are you continuing with judo. Each martial art has its own strengths in mma. The great thing about mma is the fact that you can get somebody who does kickboxing and wrestling against a bjj and muay thai fighter. The mixture is what makes the sport great, if you feel that wrestling is better than judo, keep the wrestling up man. Why not?

    If one discipline works better for you than others then stick with it IMO. No use in going to ones that don't.

    i do judo because i love it and have trained in it for all my life. pretty much the formula that has worked in mma is muay thai,boxing,wrestling and bjj, there are a few exceptions but the formally mentioned combo of arts have been proven time and time again to be the most successful,to the extent that pretty much every fighter trains them.

    some throws from judo can be adapted to work without the gi but they already exist in wrestling.

    I see what your saying, Similar to BJJ and no-gi grappling. I would like to do some judo but i simply dont have the time, I train thai and BJJ at the minute. I will start mma when i feel ready as I would rather have a knowledge of some martial arts before going straight into mma.

    I will however (when i move over to do some mma) do a night of judo and possibly 1 night of wrestling per week to help my mma game. I feel that somebody who jumps into mma straight away will get, good at everything. Whereas I would like to pay attention to my stand up, and my ground game, so i am very competent and accomplished in BJJ and thai boxing when i start MMA.

    Also I feel it is a lot to take on at once to jump into mma and some people dont take to it without a good martial arts background of some sort. When i do start some mma (most likely when i get my blue belt in BJJ) I will encorporate wrestling, thai, judo and my BJJ. one night a week if thats all i can do.

    Out of interest, are foot sweeps commonly taught in wrestling, or is that more of a Judo thing?

    That comment is simply wrong.

    The rules were changed to try and protect judo's original techniques; IMO this is misguided but your statement about wrestlers putting on a gi and destroying judoka is just laughable; I have never been on with a pure wrestler in judo that I could not beat under judo rules.

    Now there are judoka who have blended various wrestling influences such as the mongolians, gerogians, azerbaijan but they are still judoka competing in judo events; is is just another style of judo.

    the difference beween judo and bjj is judo is more stand up. As for the ground work in judo they will lose points if they get put on there back!
