    It's already been said but bears repeating. Judo practices against a 100% live resisting opponent, and the techniques have been refined to work against those kind of people. Aikido is not practiced with resistance in a competitive atmosphere (for the overwhelming majority).

    Also...Race Bannon from Johnny Quest did Judo. He did not do Aikido. So that should cinch it for you.

    If Brock Samson (Venture Brothers) did Aikido, I'd shoot for it.

    Think I'll lean towards Judo, instead. I think I like the idea and the fundamentals behind it. I'll read that Aikido thread after work. Saw some of the videos, and they seemed pretty cool.

    Not to knock on Aikido, or anything, because I'm sure it's a great art. I just think Judo would better compliment my Shotokan.

    Thanks for the quick, honest replies. :)

    Can't, so I'll add to it:
    The only billionaire I know personally is a former All-Japan National Champion judoka!

    Yes, 007 often did judo. So did Bill Cosby and Robert Culp in the original "I spy". Believe it or not, they actually did real judo on that show.

    And how could anyone forget Teddy Roosevelt...also a Judoka.

    The only guy who managed to beat the hell out of Oh Dae Su in "Old Boy" was a judoka, and he did it with a textbook ashi barai. No comparison, judo owns everyone.
    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.

    Judo: the choice of champions, secret agents, presidents, billionaries and studs worldwide.

    Don't leave home without it .
