Re: What technique would you apply to neutralize Brazilian Jujitsu attacker

I've been training in BJJ for a little more than a year now, (I started because it was close to home and easier than advertising and getting enough people to come and do aikido with me in a little town in northern VT, I'm sticking with it for those reasons, plus I'm having fun, and its a great group of guys.)

Frankly, in aikido we don't train against the kind of attacks that a BJJ player will use..

To get a sense of what you're up against, imagine what technique you would use if someone threw a net over you (and since you're a martial artist, might as well imagine that net is covered with pitch or glue, a
and has lots of little barbed fishhooks sewn into it). Gadi is on the right track, but remember that BJJ does train against knife attacks too...
