Kickboxing vs Jiu Jitsu

The biggest difference between the two sports is how techniques are executed. Kickboxing uses techniques that require players to fight while standing up.

You kick, hit, and punch upright. Jiu-Jitsu, which originated from Brazil, is a contact sport that involves ground fights. This means you will be grappling and wrestling on the ground. 

Jiu-jitsu also focuses on pinning down or locking a specific body part of the opponent to discourage mobility and to decrease the effectiveness of their attacks.

There are more attack variations for jiu-jitsu. However, it is also very demanding since fighting on the ground doesn’t give you much advantage unless you are well-trained with the technique.
