For what it's worth, my Judo experience far outweighs my Ju Jutsu experience (which was mostly with the WJJF). I find Judo far more engaging as an art than the Ju Jutsu I have studied. Ditto my limited experience (all two classes of it!) with BJJ, I consdier BJJ a far more engaging form of JJ than anything I did with the WJJF.





Prize,
you're all over the board here. If you're doing Judo, you're doing jujutsu... for it is comprised of a combination of Kito Ryu and Tenshin Shinyo Ryu, which is in itself a combination of Yoshin Ryu and Shinno Shindo Ryu. It now has rules that preclude a lot of the more dangerous techniques, but it's still the same thing without the sting.

I didn't punch in the poll, more because there isn't a real place for the "other"... as Judo is actually jujutsu, and Brazilian Jujutsu is actually a Judo-based art. You seem to think you can only train one style of jujutsu, but I've done Judo for almost 45 years, and studied Aikido 23 years, and also done Hakko Ryu, Goshin Budo, Kito Ryu, Daito Ryu... where's the button for that? Many of the karate styles I've studied had jujutsu techniques in them that were clearly jujutsu, and not karate, but taught in the karate venue rather than as Jujutsu.

My point is that your almost have to have a "fill in the blank" type of poll if you're going to make a style comparison, and be able to include more than one style or system. Clearly Judo and Aikido use different mechanisms for throws, and someone like me would use whichever tended to lend itself to the attack, so it's a difficult question to ask "what's your major style?"

Experience is experience... and many of the jujutsu styles I've studied were done in karate schools or Aikido schools where there was a "secondary class" in that particular discipline, or done as part of the karate study, so while the "classical schools" might be hidden, they aren't as far gone as you seem to think. There are a lot of jujutsu teachers out there, many of them only teaching a few students "on the side" while practicing other arts.

Jujutsu is a tough art, and not for the faint of heart. Unlike a lot of combat arts where you get padded up and fight, jujutsu is fought between you and the ground in most cases, or in the case of armlocks, etc. between you and your ability to endure pain. You'll seldom find large classes of jujutsu students because it hurts to practice... but the classes and teachers are out there... you just have to look around to find them.

I have no doubt that there are. But with my life and martial arts at the moment, finding a good JJ teacher isn't something I am interested in at present.

Am sure there are people who have studied more than one art, and again, this is something that perhaps should be factored in to the poll.

BUt as it stands, I can't change the poll. And this was either my first or second attempt at creating a poll (can't remember which), so it was all a bit new to me.

It is what it is though.
