    I like Judo’s stand up work. Nihon Goshin Aikido is a good option (my primary art) as long as it is taught with its Judo principles/roots intact (without that, it leans too heavily on aiki flow). Some of the Jujutsu out there is good for stand-up grappling.

    It’s more a matter of finding a school/instructor that matches what you are looking for.

    Of the systems that I have personal experience with ...

    Judo is excellent for use of the gi and developing nuances of kuzushi (off-balancing).

    Wrestling is excellent for no-gi gripping, lower body attacks, developing aggression and the ability to regain your feet.

    Sombo combines strengths of Judo and wrestling with some unorthodox gripping methods.

    Muay Thai has advanced grappling integrated with striking.

    (The 4 arts also have a lot of overlap. I'm just pointing out some of the areas each excel in.)

    I've practiced several other arts which contain standup grappling, but those 4 are the best among those I've trained in. Shuai Jiao looks interesting to me, but I haven't had the chance to try it myself.

    Ah yeah Shuai Jiao.... lived in China for a while never got/tool the chance to study

    Good point.

    Aikido with strong judo roots, that must be quite interesting. I did Aikido before but the school closed just for I was due to take my 1st Kyu


    Really like the wrestling video

    If I was going to pick something that would blend well with Jiu-Jitsu as another grappling art, it would be SAMBO. All of the Judo, plus a good deal of Catch Wrestling built in, and all of the work is already done to figure out how to blend them. Plus, guys have been doing no-gi SAMBO for while now, so all of the work has been done there to figure out how to make throws and takedowns work without having the grips that the gi provides.

    The problem is that finding legit SAMBO is difficult, whereas almost any decent size town has a pretty quality Judo club, and usually has great prices to boot.

    NGA is a cousin to Ueshiba’s Aikido. Both have Daito-ryu as their primary base. NGA also has strong influences from Shotokan Karatedo and Kodokan Judo. I have prior experience in Judo, so have an affinity for the Judo roots.
