Wrestling Vs Judo - Who has better takedowns for BJJ?

Is Wrestling or Judo Better For BJJ?

An often debated subject amongst BJJ players is the question of which is better for BJJ, wrestling or judo? Both have a lot to add to your game so why not train both? Wrestling is great for learning pressure and control. Judo is great for studying throws and sweeps. In a sport as dynamic as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu you will face competitors with a whole range of back ground. Grappling arts such as wrestling and sambo have infiltrated even the highest levels of competitive BJJ. So when it comes to wrestling or judo, is one really better than the other? Let’s see what 5 time world champion Bernardo Faria has to say about it. Check out the video below!

There are few jiu jitsu martial artists who really dive deep into all aspects of grappling. Bernardo Faria is one of them. He just seems to be comfortable and extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of grappling - including passing, half guard, and the overall fundamentals concepts.

To Bernardo this is a very personal question. To him, it really depends on your style. In Faria’s case, he feels that wrestling is better for the way he likes to pass guard from his knees rather than standing. If you do judo and your posture is very high you are going to have a different type of game. So it depends a lot on what level you start out at. Wrestlers tend to get low and shoot whereas judokas start with a very tall posture and fight for different throws. In jiu jitsu there is no right or wrong, if it works for you it works for you. If you are just starting out exploring, focus on one or the other, but do not be afraid to try both. You never know what you are going to learn that will help improve your BJJ game!
