Re: aikido vs jiu-jitsu

Having about 5 years of BJJ experience in addition to my Aikido, I found it amazing that when I trained with my sensei his ground defenses from the mount were just like doing upa or elbow escape in BJJ with the difference being that in Aikido we don't try to submit the attacker while on the ground, we are looking to escape and get back up where we are more comfortable, namely on our feet.
