Ju-jitsu is a very competent martial art. From my experience ju-jitsu is simply a larger more complete form of aikido. Techniques are often similar but with two key differences. Fistly when a ju-jitsu practitioner takes a hold of the opponent they will be intending to cause as much pain as possible with their grip, secondly the technique will often be taken further than an aikido technique. What i mean by that is they will not stop when a technique starts to hurt like may aikido move do, instead they look for ways to enhance the pain by further twisting the arm and baseing it as quickly as possible. This means ju-jitsu is a move effective real-life self defense than aikido.
What i like about it is that it is a very complete art. learning punches, kicks, locks, pressure points, throws, ground defense, ground escapes, ground submissions etc.
The ultimate for self defense would be to mix ju-jitsu with kickboxing or preferably muay thai, so you can learn and practise combat when standing and on the ground
A good test for real life effectiveness for martial arts is the ultimate fighting championship where there are very few rules. The only martial arts that successfully take part in these events other than the extreme fighting styles of vale tudo and sambo, are ju-jitsu and muay thai.
