Re: aikido vs jiu-jitsu

Ya know, I've heard anecdotes from people regarding ground-fighting being a good self-defense technique in situations where your attacker is likely to pin you... like a rape situation. But I know too little about any art to do more than go, "wow, neat story". *shrug*

I don't even know enough to know if aikido *has* techniques that operate from a position like that. Is there stuff that operates with uke above, and tori lying on their back?

Just curious at this point. Interesting discussion.
