Re: Aikido and BJJ Discussion

Kevin, your post reminds me of what George L. says about placing your intent inside uke's attack. Less skilled people who simply push forward inspite of your mind being inside their attack are cannon fodder to good aikido. I need more and more experience with more and more skilled people to learn to allow my body to support the mental experience.

One without the other just doesn't work for me...

Best,
Ron

For me in BJJ, I tend to be somewhat reactive in nature rather than attack. This is why I lose alot.
Phew. I thought I was the only one.

Re: Aikido and BJJ Discussion

I still struggle to relax completely in both, though I have improved on breathing better. Great website and quite unique.

Respectfully

Chris
