JUDO NEWAZA LOOKS A LOT LIKE BJJ, HMMM!



Imagine a world where world class BJJ and Judo dance harmoniously on the mats. Ground work is a real thing in Judo, it may be overshadowed by the big throws we all think of when someone mentions Judo, but it's real thing. For casual Judo fans, you will more often then not see a violent armbar or nasty throw-to-choke combo than Judokas favoring going to the ground without the use of a throw. On occasion it does happen, for example Flavio Canto is one of the worlds top Judokas (of course he Brazilian) and he typically utilizes his nasty ground skills in place of big throws in competition.

Many people still think BJJ magically came to Helio Gracie in a vision, and he masterfully created the art that exists today. Sorry grapplers, that just isn't true. As grappling continues to garner more attention and notoriety, many choose to cross train or adopt techniques and methods from other styles. For those of you not familiar with the Judo guard, you will quickly notice the same style submissions found in our beloved BJJ. Watch and learn...

  2. Uh, not really. Judo is heavily pin oriented, fast paced, and very one-dimensional in grappling positions and setups. BJJ is far more comprehensive, detailed, and provides a variety of games and techniques with unlimited variations and sub-variations. Judo is generally constrained by time limits, the point system and even with limited types of submissions. You're very unlikely to find a judoka with an in-depth knowledge of a firm open guard game with amazing sweeps or with a killer omoplata combo with other submissions, let alone a strong closed guard game.

    Ive noticed that people who assert that BJJ is nothing special and judo has all or most of BJJ techniques are those with minimal or no experience in grappling. That way it's easier to discredit the founders of BJJ and jump on the bandwagon of BJJ's success and popularity. It's ignorant and misleading.
