Judo vs. JuJitsu vs. Hap Ki Do?
What I want to ask is two things I want to learn a ground based martial art so I decided to pick one of these three what I want to know is which one would you say is a better all round and which one would be better for fitness training.
P.S. when I say better all round I don't mean which one is the best, but which one would you consider the 'jack of all trade' style, I want to learn a ground style but I want one that could at least give a basic upright style.
Judo is the most well rounded of the 3 and probably in the top 3-5 rounded of all styles. It teaches throws, grapling and submissions. Where as JuJitu only teaches grpplin and subbmissions and Hapkido is best compared to Aikido which is esential a stand up version of JuJitsu. IT doesn't teach ground techniques.
Misconception Judo is all throws. Totally not true... It is derived from JuJitsu and teaches all of the same ground techniques JuJitsu does and adds 67 throwing techniques.
It is the most commonly used Martial art in self defence training and in Military and police training. The Canadian RCMP and military as well as our police forces. The Japanese military and police forces and many others around the world all rely on Judo as the main form or at least a large part of their training.
Infact in the 1920s in Tokyo there was a competiton between Judo and JuJitsu competitors. 13 out of 15 Judo fighters won and the 2 JuJitsu fighters that wone did so only by close desision. After the competition the Tokyo police force cancelled JuJitsu as there training technique and started Judo instead.

hap ki do
You should start with Brizilian Jiu-jitsu, there is no better ground art, I have tried them all and BJJ is the funnist and the most effective art there is.
They are ALL excellent for physicial fitness and you just don't get the physcial aspect of it u also get a new perspective on life and self respect. It also does wonders for calming the beast within us. Thats if your truely serious about this wonderful activity.
If you are looking for Ground arts... Hapkido isn't really a ground art per-say. I have been in it for 3 years now, and while we have techniques that would work on the ground, a ju jitsu or Judo would do MUCH better at that aspect. There is no Jack of all trade style other than cross training. Thats why people train multiple arts...
Well hapkido isnt really ground. Hapkido is basically like Taekwondo except with a lot more joint locking and pressure points. Judo is throwing and doesn't do as much ground submissions as jujitsu. If you want to learn a ground style but want one that coult at least give a basic upright style would be any of em. Judo would make you able to throw the attacker and Hapkido would be able to strike and do locks. Jujitsu will teach you how to succesfully bring your opponent down to the ground and applying a submission.
The truth is, if you want to use these in a fight, I suggest learning Juijitsui. If you are agressive, learning punches and kicks may be useful, but in a fight, i think that jujistu would help you the most.
