I'm a Sandan in Aikido and a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. The reason I started BJJ was because I thought it was like aikido, very subtle and gentle. I like the idea of being able to handle myself on the ground, in a one on one situation. It also has helped my understanding of escaping from the ground quickly to avoid multiple attackers. BJJ compliments Aikido when I use it to escape the ground and not get hung up in trying to submit an opponent.
