Re: Aikido against judo

George Ledyard: Thanks for your comments! I agree with you 100%

A thought keeps coming to mind. I wonder how checkers would do against chess? I mean they both are board games, and they both use the same board, and the same number of plastic pieces, with essentially the same objective. Try that...next time some one wants to play checkers...you say "okay" but I will use my chess pieces and my chess rules.

Sounds ridiculous when we look at it in this light, but somehow when we look at martial arts, we lump them all together and think they should be "plug and play" cause they have the same basic taste, smell, and look as well as the supposed end state. It is not quite that easy.
