Ju Jitsu was developed in the Japanese feudal ages. Modern BJJ focuses more on a sporting aspect whereas Ju Jitsu develops one’s ability to defend themselves.
Derived sport forms include the Olympic sport and martial art of judo, which was developed by Kanō Jigorō in the late 19th century from several traditional styles of Ju Jitsu, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which was derived from earlier (pre–World War II) versions of Kodokan judo.
