Re: aikido vs jiu-jitsu

I see in principle how passing the guard and acheiving the mount involves principles of ikkyo, nikkyo, sankyo...but I too have found it difficult this close to really call them what I consider aikido technique. I have been able to use sankyo some, but you hips areso immobile this close in that it is hard to move and turn your center to achieve the techniques. I find this is why using other fulcrum points as is typically taught in BJJ is useful to acheiving the desired affect since the hips cannot do it for you.
