how, so it's not yours. It's more about grappling submission holds so it's that's how it's unlike. Karate or Taekwondo. What about Judo? How is it different from Judo? Good question. So Judo and
are Jiu-Jitsu have the same origin of the Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, right? So they both come from the same place and, you know, in the in the in the, you know, early nineteen hundreds or even pre nineteen hundred's Judo was developed as the kind of sport of branch of Japanese Jiu-Jitsu. It was developed much more as a recreational, you know. Mind, Body Spirit and you learn these techniques, and it became much more of an of an art of practice compared to what the original Japanese Jiu-Jitsu was, which is much more focused on Survival life, or death fight for your life.

Has a much more of a curriculum driven, and it became much more of a sport where they became much more of a confined set of Rules. Where if you're standing and you throw each other and the person's back hits the ground, the fights over. So even in a sport of Judo match, once you get a one good throw, the fight is over. And so that's Judo. But it has the origin of Japanese Jiu-Jitsu which there are submissions. There are grappling techniques.

Always said, Ed was you know, if we get in a fight we're going to have to survive against someone much bigger than us. We got to do whatever it takes. So as you Jutsu it, as practiced by my family, in the early nineteen, hundreds and evolved. Since has much more has, been much more focused on actual street fight against a larger opponent. No rules punches included, which Judo does not include, we include striking techniques. Not only has can be used by US against our opponent in particular situations where we're not at risk of getting struck back, but it also factors in heavily the Against someone who's trying to knock you out. And that simply isn't something covered in Judo, or even talked about, because it's not a priority for them. So they have a similar Origins. But today, the practice and the ruleset Really determines everything, and Gracie, or Brazilian jiu-jitsu has a much germ or direct street fight application. Because in the gym, we're not practicing to a set rule set that would limit its applicability in a real fight. Gotcha.
