Re: Aikido Works

Yep, thats what I do alot. It also gets me close to them which is the best position to be in for Judo throws. Sometimes I just calmly walk straight at them and they often have a confused look on their face. Sometimes I even smile, they are like WTF?

It does not always work but it is better than fighting from a distance and working myself to death trying to throw them from arms length away.

Judo works best from an upright relaxed posture, just like in Aikido. Strength is important but only at the right moments.
