Hi, this is my first input to the forum. Probably a question you`ve been asked before.Brazilian & British Ju-Jitsu. What is the difference? Is it that Brazilian is more based on ground work?

Do you mean British Ju Jitsu Association as in BJJA and Brazilian as in BJJ. BJJA is a governing body and is to do with Traditional (Japanese) Ju Jitsu (TJJ) , not Brazilian (BJJ).

The difference is more (well alot more) ground work in BJJ.

Have a look at the pics on this site they show the differences in techni.

Andy....Calm down. You sound like someone who swings for the fences. You are obviously a member of the BJJA as i am. Damn good organisation i may add. I still think you should explain though.

Unless you incorporate something traditionally and historically British like Morris dancing or shooting Frenchmen with longbows.

I know of someone who had many years with the BJJA but has now gone to the WJJF to learn what he thought he already had learnt. When he has done that he could try the BJA and actually learn how to throw or BJJ and actually learn how to groundfight.

It can be a long process of enlghtenment:-))

Not just Morris dancing, have you seen 'English Martial Arts' by Terry Brown? I think it's published by Saxon Press.

As for British ju Jitsu (copyright: Andy), does this cover regional British forms of JJ, like those from towns in north England (Crewe Jitsu)? Is there an Australian version (Didgeri doo jitsu?) or a Dublin-based culinary version (Irish stew jitsu)?
