Re: Aikido vs Brazilian Jujutsu

I disagree with point 1). Take downs are very good for multiple attackers. So good in fact that it is a basic element of aiki randori. The bad idea is going down with the attacker. Not every bjj fighter is a double leg takedown guy. There are people like me who prefer footsweeps, hip throws, and body wheels. A takedown is a takedown, throw, shoot, or otherwise.
