BJJ VS. Karate – the differences
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Karate might look like similar styles of martial arts but there are a number of very different characteristics.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art characterised by devastating throws, takedowns, sweeps, joint locks and limb manipulation, chokes, and controlling positions. Aside from wrestling and judo, it is one of the only martial arts that offers the unique advantage of taking another human being out of the domain of using kicks and punches in a standing position to the ground where only skills specific to ground martial arts will prevail.
This is the primary difference between BJJ and Karate because where BJJ starts Karate ends, for this reason, it’s one of the best self-defence martial arts for single attacker scenarios.
Meet the Team
Daniel has been training in different sports since he was young, but always excelled in martial arts. Once he graduated, he moved to the sunshine coast and began training in MMA and Muay Thai. After a number of fights in both he took time to pursue other sports, mainly wakeboarding. However, it wasn’t long before he was drawn back to combat sports. Thanks to his competitive personality, he started competing in BJJ only 2 months after starting and hasn’t stopped since.
His commitment to training has led him to:
- 3 straight QLD State Titles
- NSW State Title
- Pan Pacific Title in 2014
- Gold at the 2017 Sydney international
- Gold in other submission only competitions
- Gold at the Australian National Pro 2017
While still actively competing on a regular basis, he has turned more of his time to teaching and developing his own skills and style.
BJJ Black Belt
I started kick boxing in New Zealand 7 years ago and when I came back to Australia I joined Infinity Martial Arts in Springfield. I begun MMA but quickly found a passion for Jiu Jitsu after competing in a few local competitions.
My life drastically changed losing a massive amount of weight as I walked through the door at 115kg losing a total of 35kg!
I not only changed my nutrition but I left my monotonous job to pursue a job in the health and fitness industry. I wanted to give back what I had learnt which eventually led me to coaching here at Infinity where I hope to give the same opportunities I was given.
I have competed all over Australia with a top 3 national ranking over the last 3 years. I was awarded my black belt from Neil Owen after 4.5 years and remain an active competitor and professional fighter under for Infinity Marital Arts and as a sponsored Hyperfly and Fight Life athlete.
I want to give everyone the same opportunity I had to grow that as I once had.
