    judo would help your bjj , but don't think it will help ALOT for mma. wrestling would be a better option

    Of course Judo will help your MMA game. Judo= takedowns,submissions, and pins. I don't see why it wouldn't.

    Good luck with your training

    As YeahBee says, as long as your BJJ school isn't considerably worse than the Judo school on offer, I'd stick to getting really good at BJJ.

    I do MMA now and had trained in Judo but moved and don't live near a dojo anymore. Still, I found it helpful in the clinch and just staying on my feet when people are trying to take me down. It also gave me great posture when I'm in top control on the ground.

    I am a BB in judo and recently switched to BJJ and MMA.

    The reactions and fitness transfer over well. I find my low kicks are almost more sweeps and are almost instinctive. I have no problems in the clinch, but I have to "restrain" myself because I don't want to be a prick and slam my partners - so I only throw when I am confident of a clean throw. The upright judo stance suits striking well although I am working on a more square stance rather than side-on.

    Any BJJ'er/MMA'er who says he doesn't want to improve his judo is a damn liar. I hope to start as soon as I have enough cash:icon_cry2 and it's a bitch trying to find any judo club that has ANY no gi focus.

    Well played sir!:icon_lol:

    But alas you will always be a judoka in our books... Judo is only cool when we BJJ/MMA types learn to adapt it to no gi and use it to compliment our games. How sad for you!

    But seriously lol. Do you have a fairly easy time adapting your throws to no-gi situations?

    It's OK so far. However, I have not had a big opportunity because in MMA we've been doing mostly striking and in BJJ we've done few TDs yet, plus rolling start from the ground.

    The few times I have tried it I have been able to hit osoto-gari, o-goshi and morote-gari (double-leg) and a couple of foot-sweeps (okuri-ashi-barai).
