    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.

    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.

    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.

    There you go... JJ was to Japan what Kung Fu is to China.
