Re: What technique would you apply to neutralize Brazilian Jujitsu attacker

Good post, Ron. I had a much longer attempt to say what you succinctly put.

Thing is, you can train for these things to make your aikido better if it's of any interest. It doesn't mean you're suddenly competing, just maybe stepping outside the comfort zones a tad . . . (FWIW, to each their own and what not)

Just comes back to training goals, honestly testing them (and associated theories) and maybe being flexible about one's dogma - especially early on the learning curve (of course this can be applied to far more than just "aikidoka").
