What's more effective for REAL life fighting?

Not in MMA but as a self defense/fighting technique. Which is more effective on the streets? Judo or BJJ?

I've trained several years in Wing Chun and some Muay Thai as well. Looking to start training in a grappling discipline and wanted to get Sherdog's take on the most effective grappling style. I'm not trying to compete or anything. Just mainly for exercise and self defense. BJJ & Judo are the two main disciplines I'm debating over. Help me decide!

Honestly the most effective thing in a life and death situation is any hard item you can find. But other than that track and field. But If you want a real answer Probably Judo is greater than BJJ because it starts on the feet usually. Most people won't recover from getting slammed on the pavement.

hip throws have to be precise and the slightest off set would cancel the move your better with BJJ because you close the distance,clinch,takedown and choke.

I dunno... if only there was an event where different styles fought each other, then we'd know.

Uh judo does this too...

BJJ and Judo are starting to vary so much - some BJJ schools have more takedowns than others, just as some Judo schools have more newaza than others.

The only semi-consistent conclusions you can make between the two is that BJJ is generally a little more available due to its popularity, but Judo tends to be cheaper.

let's not forget that in real life situations there are real life consequences. If you judo throw someone on concrete, there is a good posibility that he will get seriously injured and you have to deal with that legal consequence.

I don't. But would be useful to know a grappling art just in case I do have to fight in the streets. Shit happens.
