Yeah, sorry the response took so long.

BJJ is alot of legs, alot of chokes and working the ground for leverage. As demonstrated by Royce Gracie, it is very much a small-man's martial art. What you learn first depends on the teacher, I spent alot of time practicing how to work a guard into a choke or an armbar. BJJ is really good if you're a smaller guy with a Napoleon complex (which I am).

JJJ is alot more spiritual for me, but I also practice Aikido, so I get alot of that. I practice alot of standing pins in JJJ, just because they don't happen as much in BJJ. JJJ is alot more upper body and fits nicely with Judo and Roman-Greco. It also incorporates joint locks and using them in takedowns.

which MA is best for fighting, hard to say they all have strength and weaknesses, all depends on how the art is applied really and who is applying it

No one on this forum can really say which is the best MA as a huge majority practice martials on here, with MA varying from person to person creating a biased view. Are you much better at grappling/holding/choking or striking. Its all down to what you find works best for you and then working at it.
