So, other than Ju-Jitsu, are there any other martial arts you guys practise or any other things you do in your spare time?

And if any of you do other martial arts, what would you recommend as a compliment to Ju-Jitsu, other than Judo?

Bronski, it depends what you want to do. If you do traditional Jujitsu with little sparring, and want to be better at fighting I'd recommend something with a lot of sparring in like boxing, kick boxing or Tae kwon do.
For girls who want to defend themselves against attack from a man, I'd recommend Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo or Aikido. These will help you defend and attack someone trying to manipulate your body for their own purposes.

Spider, thanks for the info. I'm not sure which Ju-Jitsu I'm training in, but I think it's more Brazillian. So far we haven't done any real sparring (a bit of Ne-Waza in a warm up) but we've done a lot of things that are very much "how to stop that mugger with a broken bottle stealing your hat" kinda stuff. Meh, I'll ask sensai next session.

Thanks again!

That sounds more traditional ju-jitsu.

BJJ is a LOT more ground based, and you'd know for sure if it was a BJJ class you was at.

Ask your sensei about it, and see if there's any classes for more ground-work stuff. It's a lot more fun, and could help you if the worst happened.

It's used by a lot of cage-fighters to be able to defend themselves on the ground - or even to take the fight to the ground and be pretty sure a striker is a bit poo once you get them on the ground. Hell, I won my first Vale Tudo fight with that approach.
