Greetings jujutsuka, I started my martial journey doing jujutsu (ittaishin ryu, an offshoot of tsutsumi hozan) and spent 6 years at it. I enjoyed it a lot and feel I gained a lot. 4 years after starting I decided to supplement with judo, which two years later became my sole focus. Fast forward 6 years and I am still doing judo (almost at shodan), competing at national titles and heavily involved in the sport side of things. Having gone through all of this I can honestly say that jujutsu and judo are two sides of the same coin. I will definitely pick jujutsu back up at some point in the future. What I would like to know is, have any of you done judo and picked up jujutsu later on, and what are your thoughts? While one could follow my path and go jj>judo>jj it seems to me most people would achieve a greater level of proficiency with judo first, where they would gain a better appreciation of balance, coordination and gross motor skills which would then help them gain a quicker grasp of the finer motor skills found in jujutsu. What do you guys think?
