Sorry I misspoke and stadn corrected. Pancrease and UFC to be more specfic. There have been plenty of Judoka and Karateka in all three however.

You may have to drill down a bit however Jason has adapted many Aikido techniques into his style. I by the way cross train in MMA and Submission wrestling which I still find very beneficial to our style of Aikido and quite fun even at my "old" age which is 46.

I am a big fan of Jason's and I can't wait to see where he progresses to.
