Judo is usually much more competative.

That really depends on how you train jiu-jitsu. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is HIGHLY competitive.

Japanese and Brasillian styles of Jujutsu are different. BJJ is highly sport oriented. JJJ is more oriented to tranining the art. What you pick really depends on your goals, do you want to compete or are you interested in learning applications of an art. If you want to compete then BJJ or Judo is the way to go. BJJ works more on groundwork and Judo works more on throws.

Really it doesn't matter which type of style you use, the techniques are pretty much all the same, just taught in different ways.

Really the best way to start is to find a school and go try it out. Most schools give a free 1-2 introductory lessons. Go find the art you're most comfortable with.

The original Japanese Jujitsu was designed around combat style until in 1882 Dr. Jigoro Kano eliminated many of the dangerous techniques and made it more of a sport martial art for competition. Brazilian Jujitsu is an off shoot of both of these arts.

They all have similarities and differences but when one is learned it can be an easy transition to the others ... as I've seen from my own Instructor ... then again it may also have to do with the person.

Do what Leo says, try a few out and see what you like best and then decide.

japanese jujitsu also has more standing locks and chokes than bjj which is mostly groundfighting. ive heard this is because helio gracie was is such a little guy that he had trouble making the standup holds work. im not too familiar with judo, but crosstraining between jiu jitsu and judo would probably make a good combo.

hea im jon well a year ago i was stuck in the same position but with all martial arts and i found that it depends on what you want to learn! like with ju jitsu its more of ground fighting and grappeling! and judo is more like karate and other standing fighting! so really its what you want to learn!
if you want to fight mostly on the ground and do holds and stouf then do ju jitusu. and if you want to stand then do judo! the decision is yours. i hope i helped at all!

Interesting, here I was thinking that Kano created Kodokan JJ. I study an school of JJ which predates Kodokan by nearly 200 years (1660). Kodokan is not the original Jujutsu, plenty of styles predate it. It gradually became known as Judo, I believe. And no, Jujutsu is still trained today with all the nasty bits left in, I assure you.
