    akido and bjj

    This has most likely been done before but has anyone crosstrain in both akido and bjj? Do they compliment each other and what problems have you faced?

    I crosstrained in both for a time. Both arts complement each other and are based in similar principles. Problems? none of real importance.

    Roy Dean is an Aikido and BJJ black belt. I believe he has a DVD on just that.

    I train them both, and see them as perfect accompaniments: I apply the same principles in BJJ as in aikido, and the sparring in BJJ has certainly helped me to develop a stronger centre, and hips.

    I'm curious to know what techniques you find applicable within the Aikido skill set, which are useful within BJJ ?

    It's not so much specific techniques, as principles: relaxation; using the hips; connection...

    I did get a sankyo on someone, in my first class; I also submitted someone who's trained for three years, with a Kimura...
    Now, i'm starting to effect breaking the grip when someone tries for wrist control; I use a kind of, irimi motion, and a cutting down and around, turning the wrist over into a textbook nikkyo.

    I'm also relatively difficult for people to push me onto my back.

    @DCS: yes.

    Not sure where you're based but have you heard of Rik Ellis or trained with him? Hes a pro MMA fighter and a black belt in Aikido, he does very well in the cage.
