Well recently I have posted a question and fpr another time i am going to post another question. Recently I had a discussion with a friend of mine. The discussion is about martial art. Later my friend,asked me what martial I am picking up now.I told her that I am learning Jujitsu. All of the sudden she said that learning jujitsu is waste of time and when it comes to street fight,it is not effective.Now i am in a confuse state. Which martial art is better,karateor Jujitsu when it comes to street fight.(my friend is a state squad karate exponent but nothing to shout about it)

honestly?

I would say "neither".

Karate is too stiff for my liking.
JJ has some good stuff though. Now if you are 1 on 1 then JJ could help you "close" a street fight.

Just like Karate could help you "open" one.

But on their own...yeah..

Just choose what you like m8. I Do Kung Fu, but my friends do Karate, Ninjuitsu and Tae kwon Do. Just do what you like best. Thats the only way to learn.

Just ignore negative comments. Good Luck.

Here's a plug the martial art I practice is Wado (imagine that) if you get a good teacher it is about 65% JuiJitsu 35% Karate. It is almost semantics that it is even called Karate but our founder took Jui Jitsu which he practiced first and added to it what he saw as the most effective techniques of what he learned from Funakoshi, like the roundhouse kick the side kick and the straight punch.

Vicky,

either Karate or Ju Jitsu is good. Neither is best, but how you use it towards a perp is what is important. Okay lets break it down.

Karate, someone makes the wrong punch or kick and then open the area by striking your opponent, very hard very strict. It works.

Ju Jitsu, someone throws a punch, but then gets lanched by his or her own weight which is caused by a nage waza, following up on a shime waza or a kansetsu waza. So you think, jujitsu is like a virus, once you make your mistake, your are in it for the run, as the attacks will slowly take you apart.

Try your friend for example, have her throw a kick or punch, and then react by demonstrating a technique that she may fancy over. Try, I believe she will respect you more and your arts.

My friends and I spar sometimes with what they know and what I know.

Arts don't fight anyone.

Its the PERSON using them that counts.

Some arts focus on different things.

"Karate" and "jujutsu" are generic words for maybe 100's of schools and styles.

(so are Kung-fu-or JKD-or any number of terms)

i myself do karate, it is great to practice the higher level techniques but when it comes to a street fight i would use the simplest moves and apply them to my situation naturally, learning all of it is no good it you cant feel comftable so pick the art that suits you best

When it comes to street fighting, all that is, is use anything to your advantage. There are no rules, regulations and certainly no refs. Martial arts (and the self defense) can and will help if you are attack in a big city.
