#117371 - 07/20/04 02:03 PM Judo/Jujitsu same thing?

I have heard some people mention that judo and jujitsu are the same things, except that judo has more throws.
Just wondering what you all think..

You mean JapaneseJJ, or BrazilianJJ?

JapaneseJJ has Judo throws but is more standup and rounded as far as tools to use and techniques available. The difference is the way it is usually trained. Judo is trained with a sporting concept and allows players to practice their throws full force with little risk of injury (they say that anyway, Judo still hurts).

Compared to BJJ, which originated from Judo, they are basically the same with BJJ concentrating more on matwork and Judo more on throws (usually).

They are just basic explanations...a little web research will turn up lots of info about all 3 (JJJ, BJJ, and Judo).

No, they are definitely Not the "same thing". They are different.

Jujutsu is the father art of Judo. Jujutsu contains all that Judo does, plus a LOT more.
Here are two articles, both written by Jigoro Kano, the creator of Judo. They should help clear things up.
These two on Jujutsu
On Judo

Judo is simply one style of jujutsu - often called Kano-Ryu Jujutsu. It had what Kano considered the best techniques of jujutsu put together.

There were over 700 different official schools of jujutsu in Japan but jujutsu was considered archaic and an art no longer necessary in the civilized world - especially after the samurai had his power taken away from him. The general public considered jujutsu something that thugs and criminals used on innocent people.

Thats why Kano gave it the name Judo instead of Jujutsu. He wanted the art to appeal to the general public as a way of life and health which mutually benefitted everyone. Calling it Judo would make it sound seperate than the bad reputation of jujutsu. But it was often called Kano's Jujutsu instead of judo. And the terms judo and jujitsu were used interchangeably to mean the same thing for a long time. So it was all the same stuff anyway. Its only been recently that there is such a seperation.

Today they are more seperate in techniques focused on but really if you do judo then you are doing a style of jujitsu. Its just that the focus is different.
