    Nisho's iaido was also pretty damn awesome.

    He created Aiki Toho Iai based on his knowledge of aikido and iaido.

    Just out of interest, as I plan to do aikido in about ten years or so, how much time have the aikidokas on the board trained in other martial arts for?

    Also, is it true about the hot chicks?

Finally if you learn kata you will spend a lot of time hitting the mat.
    -Just for clarification, when you say "circular" are you talking about tenkan? I don't want to misunderstand your question and answer in gibberish. Not all Aikido technique practiced end up in a hard fall, but I would say I am lucky that several guys in my Aikido club like to throw people pretty hard and I need to break fall properly unless I want to get hurt.
    -My uni's judo club is about 20% Drill+Conditioning, 40% tachiwaza randori, 40% newaza rolling, so probably not enough ukemi practice.

    Aikido-2.5 years
    Judo-3 months
    BJJ-3 months
    MMA-2 months
    And no, I am yet to see hot Aikido chicks... but I've seen couple of hot Judo chicks.

    No, tenkan is just a method for stepping offline or around. By circular I mean that mostly, and I stress again in my limited experience, we just took nice big rolls. Very seldom did we do anything where we got drilled straight down into the mats as so often happens in judo. I didn't see any aikido technique that was the equivalent of a judo shoulder or hip technique - mostly you just get projected forward or back. Although I guess you could take a reasonably hard fall from iriminage, I never saw it - we just rolled back in a cooperative fashion.

    As far as the chicks go - way more of them in general in aikido than in judo.

    im not sure if i wrote this but i also train bjj my only concern is i want a style for self defense as in judo (just about 6 classes so far) i don't see much self defense other than throws and some sweeps so i figured if aikido was legit it would be ok?

    A throw is a pretty damn effective form of physical self defence. If self defence is your goal—i.e. practical application of martial techniques against an aggressor—you need, need, need to practice your techniques against unco-operative opponents in a sparring context. (Cf. this.) Judo will almost invariably provide this. Aikido, it seems, usually won’t.

    Judo is usually considered as a better form of SD than BJJ. I certainly consider it to be, but YMMV. Judo teaches you to move, control your opponent and stay standing. Nike-do is probably the best kind of SD, frankly.

    Aikido, how shall I say this, sucks. And I have couple of years of hard-style aikido dedicated to SD in my background. It did have more women, but also a fair percentage of lesbians (and no, not the pretty ones...). If you want hot chicks, do capoeira. Dear Lord.

    Is your BJJ club sport based? My club has a self defense mindset I find better for self defense than other styles i've trained. ( 5 years Balintawak FMA, 1 yr hapkido, 6 months JJJ, 10 months BJJ)
