Can someone explain to me the difference's between the following arts:

BJJ
JJ
Judo
Submission Wrestling
Wrestling
Greco Roman Wrestling
Freestyle Wrstling

All I know is they all look similar, and I have been advised to take other arts other than BJJ and I don't understand why I would want to learn the same shit twice.
 
Are you joking? You're talking about something that cannot be explained in a post. Google search each one of them and read what you find.
 
And watch as many of the different styles as you can. It will start to make sense in time.
 
Im telling you people, some one should "sticky" a FAQ about this shit.

Ok, very broadly speaking:

BJJ: Mostly groundfighting, with an emphasis on submissions.
JJ: Traditional JJ is mostly wristlocks and small circle standing takedowns.
Judo: Wide open, but generally speaking has an emphasis on throws. The origin of BJJ and Sambo. A pajama wearing style.
Submission Wrestling: Wrestling with submission attempts allowed. Generally no-gi.
Wrestling, Greco, Freestyle: Wrestling in tights, each with different rules. No subs.
Sambo: Russian branch of Judo, with leg locks allowed. Pajama tops, shorts, wrestling shoes.
 
basically what seprates all of the grappling arts is the rules of their competitions.
 
try those diffrent arts find out what they do for yourself thats the best way of finding out
 
What's the difference between WWF and WCW?

Are you serious about judo being the origin of BJJ?

A japanese count named Maeda taught Judo to Helio

Maeda wasn't really a count, it was kind of a nickname given to him when he was doing pro wrestling in the states (yes you heard me right). Actually it was a nickname given in Spain, which was altered in the states, and it wasn't Helios grandfather he taught, it was Helios older brother.

from the link I gave before

We've been over the history of BJJ, Sambo, Judo plenty... Let us not further muddle up a truly bizarrely uninformed thread with more overplayed silliness.

A more acurate description of Japanese Jiu Jitsu might be:

JJ: A name which broadly covers various martial arts taught mainly before the immergence of Judo in Japan. Each ryu would have their 'secret' moves, which they wouldn't share with the others. Jigoro Kano compiled the sparring-safe moves from various ryuha (including the ground-fighting of Matemon Tanabe's branch of Fusen Ryu Jiu Jitsu) into Kano Ryu Jiu Jitsu, later called Judo.
