Re: aikido vs jiu-jitsu

For an interesting constrast, take up jujitsu. I think you'll find the similarities and differences quite "interesting". FWIW, jujitsu has given me a better appreciation of aikido and why things are done the way they are in aikido. Conversely, aikido has given me a distinct advantage over jujitsu in more ways than one. Nonetheless, it comes down to what level you're at in your art and what level your attacker is in their art. No way would I take on my jujitsu sensei ;-). But his students....i.e. my jujitsu sempai.... are quite a different matter. :-)
