Thread: Judo and BJJ Whats the difference between them?

  1. #11


    Overall, in my limited experience of both, I have found that the biggest difference between them is that Judo hurts more.

    Judo made in Japan.
    Brazilian Jiu Jitsu made in USA.

    Most importantly, go down to a judo club and have a few session. Go also down to a BJJ club and have a few sessions. See what you like and enjoy.

    I can guarantee you will find many wonderful and crazy people

    Yeah you'll need a gi. Just buy a plain Judo gi to start off with. You can pick them up for around 25 in many sports stores and online. It's only 25 so you're not breaking the bank. If you find that you don't like it then you can use your Judo gi for lounging round the house. They're very comfortable and it freaks people out when you answer the front door in it.

    you can wear the gi for both and you will get a white belt free 9 times out of 10

    Yeah, if you buy a Judo Gi you'll be able to use it for BJJ as well. Once you've decided whether you want to stick with it you'll probably decide to buy BJJ gi too. There isn't much difference really, just Judo Gis have slightly wider sleeves.

    Unlike BJJ gis most Judo Gis come with a belt.

    Don't know what size you are but here's a decent Judo Gi for 25. Perfect for a beginner.

    Judo gis sizes are done by height. This one is to fit people who are between 5ft 10" and 6ft 1"
