Re: aikido vs jiu-jitsu
Chad's my hero! Why didn't I think of that!
Chris, no slight intended, but try that against a martial arts EXPERT in any budo and you're gonna get worked. Against a Jui-jitsu expert you're in even deeper that that. Jui-jitsu usually teaches how to deal with someone "keeping their hands tight on their chest, and protecting their neck and collar" on the first day. Then they spend the next 10 years perfecting how to get by people who are countering the things that usually work.
Like I said, no offense intended.
