Re: So I took a Judo class today...
Wow, it has been a long time since this discussion took place. I have been on a hiatus from martial arts for several years since my son was born.
Looking back I think both my Aikido and Judo were at their best when I was training in both. I am trying to get back to Judo again and will probably go to Aikido again after I get my Judo Shodan. It will be a herculean effort due to the poor shape I am in so I will probably need to take BJJ as well to get enough training time a week in.
Aikido is definitely on the horizon again though because I see it as an advanced martial art, a place to fine tune advanced skills. Without other martial experience it is limited but it allows you take existing skills to a new level.
