Re: Tales of Judo Sparring Aikidoists
Yes Boon please do - this is exactly what I am asking for. Some Aikido before exploring a bit of Judo.
I don't think Judo Shodans are that invincible. As Craig pointed out he didn't have too much trouble shutting one down. However, the opposite is also pretty much a given. Most Aikido shodans would have trouble executing Aikido like waza against a Judo Shodan. That really interesting things happen when we try to adapt to non-standard situations. Sometimes we are successful, sometimes not.
