Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is for anyone who wants to learn how to defend him or herself in combat.

The spectacular throws (take downs) of Judo separate it from other martial arts. Those who practice judo must rely on the cooperation of their training partners in order to perfect the techniques. The one being “thrown” offers little or no resistance as the throwing technique is practiced thus allowing the one throwing to perfect his entry or attack. Once perfected, the technique is very difficult to fend off. Standing is one aspect of Judo, as judo matches are also fought on the ground. After one competitor is thrown, the match often continues on the ground, with both fighters working for a pin, or a submission by arm lock or choke. The ground techniques of Judo are very similar to those found in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu..
