Judo or Jiu-Jitsu

I have always contemplated the real differences between Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and kodokan Judo. We know they are very similar yet so different¬† just like many things are. I had never been able answer this question until one of the best seminars I ever attended with Master Sylvio Behring and Grand master Alvaro Barreto.¬† Master Sylvio answered my question by saying ” There are 3 things that make Jiu-Jitsu different from Judo”

1. Rules of the sports.

2. Use of the guard.

3. Grand Master Helio Gracie.

I am grateful for the wisdom and linage I follow through my Masters Alvaro Barreto, Joao Barreto and Sylvio Behring.
