Aoki Shinya, Flavio Canto, and Travis Stevens, integrating high level Judo and BJJ…


Oliver Travers wrote this excellent article comparing Judo and BJJ and advocating for integrating the disciplines.

For me, it’s all jujitsu.

Travers gives some great critique of both disciplines and their idiosyncrasies. As a Judo black belt and BJJ brown belt, I heartily agree with him. I find that my personal practice does not fit comfortably within either a judo dojo or a BJJ academy: I do Judo more like BJJ, and BJJ more like Judo.
