Re: Aikido vs Brazilian Jujutsu

Thanks for the info Don! What is your opinion on the matter? will Aikido work against a BJJ man or not? I trained in Japanese Jujutsu for a few years and it was ok. The whole reason for switching to Aikido was because the movements of JJ seemed unnatural to me, But when I started Aikido it was like I was supposed to be there. I also hate ground fighting, it does not interest me at all, but I did gain skillis from my JJ training and I think that many Aikido movements can still be applied while on the ground I speak of Joint locks, locking the foot and knee, and trying to take uke off balance to gain control. But if it were a real fight, there are no rules, and I would turn to girl movements, bite, spit, pull hair, claw, and throw dirt in the eye, if that's what I had to do to save my butt.
