Thumbs up Aikijujutsu, a new style?

Much the same as I recently posted on Jorgen's grading thread, I just wanted to wallow a little bit in the splendor of the fact that I have recently won my wife and step-daughters visas from Kenya to live with me here in the UK. This has been a journey which has taken the better part of thirteen years, And seen me spend four long term stays in secure hospitals ranging anywhere from two months too twenty four. But Now I have done it. Earlier this year i won and graded in my 5th kyu for aikido yellow and red in judo .6 kyu. I have also restarted my ba degree part time, which i hope to finish in 4 years, with either a 2.2 or ideally a 2.1 After that i would like to continue with further post graduate study. Possibly. I would also like to continue my martial training in Aikido and Judo training. It almost feels like Aikido is training for the marathon, whereas Judo is going for the sprint. And after my above mentioned aiki skills, I can topple most of the black belts in the class with a simple nage on many occasion, but I'm still getting a feel for it. As indeed i am the aiki. To be honest with you, if i had it my way, i would combine the randori of judo class with the waza, ma ai and philosophy of aikido to create my own aiki-judo. But then presumably i will need to hit shodan or at least first kyu in both of these styles before i would even be considered by the world affiliates martial council, for registration of this style. Not to mention I might need to look at the karate aspects of this new direction, just to add some salt to this spice which I have recently concocted. So come on Aiki web, what do we all think? Yay or nay?!?!

I suggest you have a lot more water to carry before you make this choice.

Hi John,
Are you winding the readers up? 5TH Kyu Aikido / 6th Kyu in Juddo??? You say you topple most of the Dan grades in the class?? Either your someone special or the Dan grades are poor.
Your skill levels quite frankly are hardly developed , yet you want to create your own budo?
How can you create a new budo when you hardly know or have any knowledge of either of the arts you list??Maybe after many years of solid training in both arts you might just might develop something.My advice learn the basics .Get real. Cheers, Joe.

Don't listen to the naysayers. Life is short. Go for it now!

Re: Aikijujutsu, a new style?

Why do I feel like I just entered the dojo? Where is Master Ken?

I dunno what the "world affiliates martial council" is, but I bet they'll send you a nice shiny certificate if you send them enough money.

Mary,
They may even give you certification on any martial arts, if the money is right without prior testingetc. Judo /Ludo its all the same to some people. I know guys who even print their own Dan grades, very fetching stuff as welL. Cheers, Joe.

Yeah I was pretty awesome at 5th kyu too....or so I thought.

Has it occurred to you that the reason you can take them down is because they let you?

Keep chopping that wood.

Confused Re: Aikijujutsu, a new style?

Hahaha!!!! Really?.... This is not a joke? Hmmm in that case this sounds like another Krav Maga.... Those of u who have tried it out of stupidity or simply curiosity will know what I mean and possibly chuckle a bit

Re: Aikijujutsu, a new style?

The original post sounds a lot like what I do with my students. Go forth and do what you like, I think.

I find it interesting that the kanji character for kuzushi illustrates a mountain falling on a house.
