Re: Aikido for MMA?

the pace of aikido basics classes, for me, are understandably slow and that since my knee has fully recover from the judo randori injury, I think I'm ready to practice judo again, to compliment/supplement my budding aikido.

the fact that judo is not "gentle" at all, with risks to injury during randori/throws and taking hard falls, makes it an effective conditioning for self-defense (saving lives) or for playing MMA.
