Re: aikido vs jiu-jitsu
I walked out of aikido 40 years ago, when Kissomaru fired Tohei, I won't come back until I develop the 'big Ki'.
Meanwhile, I've taken a zillion different arts. For someone trying to tackle me low, I use a combination of an Indonesian style, and judo. I fold my arm in, like an elbow strike, to push him back,.about waist high, preferably, to his week side, then, try and clip his furtherist leg behind him, at the knee joint,with my heel, then rock him until tou take his balance, then, use a judo sacrifice. There are at least 4 different directions that you could throw him, usually, he goes over your body, as you fall to the ground, floor, mat, etc.
