Re: My Experiences in Cross Training MMA with Aikido

Jabs are skillfully used to off balance, gain the iniative, and close distance. the fact that it actually hits you may or may not matter, it really is the secondary effects that you need to be concerned with such as the other hand, the fact that he has taken away space, has momentum, or has caused you to go off your center.

Parrying and moving to a better position than I am currently in is about all I can really do.
