Re: aikido vs jiu-jitsu
Holy crap! I was reading this thread and realized I posted on it in 2004. Resurrection!
Now, having just under 22 years of Aikido and 12 years of BJJ under my belt...I can say that my BJJ is much more fluid now that it is in concord with my Aikido. They are very, very similar in my eyes. Seeing the similarities rather than the differences has made them work for me.
