Last night was my second Judo lesson. Didn't teach me any new techniques just tossed me to a couple of young Japanese Shodans built like tanks and said randori.

Not a clue what to do but I figure they know what they are doing. Well at least I am getting ukemi practice in.

To paraphase Kenji Tomiki said Judo and Aikido are different sides of the same coin (jujitsu) and complement each other. The reason I am doing it now is that and the fact that a while drinking with a man who was 6th Dan Kodokan Judo and 7th Dan Aikido he said for your Aikido is good, to make it better you must now do Judo. Who am I to argue.
