Re: 2-on-1arm control from wrestling?
I was a high school wrestler when I started Aikido. I found it very difficult to transition between the two at that time (i was only 14) but with time started to form the two, along with some other arts and experiences, into "my" Aikido. I do use arm drags and the such, especially in my iriminage throws. The wrestling experience did help in that I was comfortable being close to my uke or attacker. I find myself throwing in little bits of wrestling here and there, now 14 years later..... amazing how it sticks with you.
