I've been doing BJJ for a while, but I wanted to further improve my self defense skills. I started learning Krav Maga, which is part of the Israeli Combat System (ICS). A big part of ICS is Israeli Jiu Jitsu. Can anybody tell me what the difference is between BJJ and IJJ, because they look pretty much the same from what I can tell.

Here are two sites that provide data on IJJ:



  • The IJJKO website screams BS. 5th dan and red-white? An organisation named after some Hungarian guy? What the heck?! Also, what do you expect? There are only so many functional responses to each attack, so effective training will ultimately involve the same moves regardless of the label. – Philip Klöcking Feb 26 at 11:51
