Judo utilizes very sophisticated throwing techniques and takedowns with the ultimate aim of putting your opponent flat on their back. There is also a complete ground game that emphasizes top control, as well as armbars and chokes.
In jiujitsu, once you get to the ground, the game has just begun. Jiujitsu practitioners don’t mind fighting off their backs and can get submission holds from almost any position. Jiujitsu holds the distinction of being the grappling art with the least restrictive rule set, which makes it a favorite of MMA fighters.
Judo is slightly more formal than Brazilian jiujitsu, with more bowing and a greater emphasis on courtesy and respect.
Judo and jiujitsu are both great martial arts separately, and they complement each other very well. Oakland Judo is one of the only places in the Bay Area you can train both full time!
