Re: Aikido & Judo

In my observation...

Judo train RAN-DORI first and then KATA later.

Aikido train KATA first then RAN-DORI later.

[This could explain why the effectiveness vs time graph would favour the Judoka. But after a length of time, their skill gap may reduce] - highly speculative

Darn! I just wish them Japan folks would organize a 10 men match up between Kodokan and Shodokan school consisting of university players. That would be a fantasy match come true.

Hmmm.. since we are at it, I would also wish to see a 10 men match up between amateur MMA fighters and the Senshusei trained riot cops.

So... is this possible? Popcorn anyone?

I'll go do some push-up or something....
