I used WC and Aikido against a BJJ purple today!
With amazing success!
I Chi Sau'd from under mount to keep him from getting good collar grips then I redirected his energy and trapped his arm so I could roll him off of me! A little bit later he started to escape my armbar attempt and I attacked with t3h d34dly wrist lock! He tapped to my aikidomachismo!
Note: I'm patenting "Aikidomachismo" so don't try to use it without giving me a nickel.
So the moral of the story is that after eleven years of alive training in striking and grappling you can make bullshit stuff work!
that's ok, i will use Akiidomachismo instead, in fact I just promoted myself to 8th Dan in it (what is it by the way?)
Where do i send my nickel?
When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!
"what's the best thing about aikido then?"
"To be defeated by your enemies, to be driven by them from the field of battle, and to hear the lamentations of your women." ermghoti
?Por que, estaba usando los pantalones de la magia?
Not as cool as my Dynamic Aikisambomachismo!

Think your grammar might be a bit iffy with that one.
i know you're trying to be funny(and not sure as some sort of response to my thread, sorry if i'm being presumptuous), but honestly, things do overlap and can be applied in a different context.

sometimes you find people who suck at such and such art and it just reinforces the idea you had about that art already. then you find people who train hard and can make what you consider the worst art work. and you also realize that the body can only move in certain ways, and the laws of physics don't change because you do a different art. i try to appreciate everything now and take the best from all arts, but it took me some time to appreciate.
Your forgetting about Ninjitsu, they can levitate and stuff. I've seem Ashida Kim do it on Youtube.
