Differences between judo and jiu jitsu


Differences between judo and jiu jitsu

For martial arts novices, differentiating between Judo, Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be a challenge. At Tagoya, we want to help you find the discipline that best suits your needs, recognizing their similarities and differences in terms of origin, nature, techniques and clothing.

Origin and History

Japanese Jiu-Jitsu is the oldest discipline, originating from feudal times in Japan and designed to assist unarmed samurai on the battlefield. Instead, Judo was created at the end of the 19th century by Jigoro Kano, who adapted Jiu-Jitsu techniques in a more sporting and less violent form. Mitsuyo Maeda, one of Kano's prominent disciples, traveled to Brazil and taught his techniques, which were adapted by Carlos and Helio Gracie, giving rise to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Aim

A fundamental distinction between these martial arts lies in their objective: while Judo emphasizes taking down the opponent to win, Jiu-Jitsu focuses on subduing the opponent, reflecting its nature as a self-defense system rather than a sport.

Technique

Judo is characterized by its throws and standing techniques to obtain a dominant position. On the other hand, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specializes in submissions through ground fighting, reflecting a different fighting strategy.

Uniforms

In terms of clothing, Jiu-Jitsu kimonos are generally lighter than Judo judogis, which are thicker and designed to withstand pulling. While Judo traditionally only allows white or blue judogis, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu accepts black kimonos and allows a greater variety of patches and colors.

Knowing these differences will better prepare you to choose the discipline that interests you most. At Tagoya, we encourage you to explore the benefits of Judo and Jiu-Jitsu and take the next step in your martial journey.
