Re: aikido vs jiu-jitsu

there's no 'proper' aikido for that, but, you can use the aikido concepts.If someone has you on your back, in the mount position, you need to ward off his blows, and then work your (say) right arm over to his right side, under his right shoulder, as to try and throw him shomenuchi irimi nage omote style. Meanwhile, work your legs loose, and try to get your (say) left leg wrapped around the front of his left neck, then, flop him over on his back, or belly,and get an arm lock on him.
This is nothing close to what anyone would call aikido, but, it is the type of technique that I think more dojos should practice, in order to bring aikido into the 21st century.
