A incredibly interesting take on fighting and the preferred outcome by Rener Gracie. The video becomes interesting from 7mins 15s. The concepts of connection and non violence are explored and championed. What are your thoughts?
For transparency I have been studying aikido since 1994, but had a 10 year on and off relationship with it due to my military service. I recently started training in BJJ, initially out of martial interest; but, now because I feel it offers a great deal of opportunities to explore aikido fundamentals from a different stand point. In short I am now a more relaxed and connected aikidoka because of my BJJ training.
I look forward to your opinions.
