My friend, who's my age (late 30s), was telling me he wanted to get into martial arts. I asked him for what reason and he said it was to get in shape. I took him to my Capoeira class last night so he could check it out & give it a try. After the session, he told me he changed his mind, he wants to take martial arts for self defense reasons. I suggested judo or brazilan jujitsu. He asked which is easier to learn in the beginning...I was stumped as I really don't have much experience with either. So, if any of you have practiced both judo and brazilan jujitsu please let me know your take on which is easier to learn when first starting out (for a 38 year old.) He definitely knows for 100% sure that he doesn't wanna do Capoeira anymore.
