I know some of the posters think the moniker GRAB MY WRIST is funny. I do too... honestly. I came across this phrase while lurking at AIKIWEB and it made my day then.. I am glad it made yours.

They have a different name for ude "grami" in bjj town. But rest assured, they can and will apply it, so hard your mom will feel it from across town.
Please enlighten us as to the realistic multiple uke randori in aikido.
I think "GRAB MY WRIST" Is actually a pretty funny name.

BJJ is quite realistic for what it is intended to deal with: fighting on the ground and taking the fight there. That's something I've seen happen a lot in "real" fights too. Few BJJ practicioners would argue that it covers the gammut of situations.
Why would a shomen uchi be unrealistic. To me, an uke holding a tanto (wooden training knife) in an ice pick grip coming at me with full speed, trying to plunge the training tanto into my chest is pretty realistic, the other more realistic alternative being the uke holding a live knife which for training purposes is TOO REALISTIC for me. Interesting idea it may seem, I have to pass at such REALISTIC training opportunity And that UpaLumpa is the basis for the shomen uchi attack.
Need I go further? All I am saying is, realism or not is contextual. Nothing is absolute or exactly black and white, even in martial art training.
An example of response to the above mentioned attack is Ude Grami. As a BJJ'er you should know Ude Grami, as it is a standard text book technique found judo and I am sure BJJ, seeing how BJJ derived its core syllabus from judo. It is also a textbook technique in Yoshinkan aikido. Seeing how the arts overlap at certain areas, just do not be so quick to dismiss its ineffectiveness without thinking in context.

Then you can suplex them too since they were stupid enough to turn their back, or since Aikido is so concerned about weapons and so effective in dealing with them, stab them repeatedly in the back.

I thought it was wonderful.
The funny part of this board is that a BJJ bluebelt or higher also seems to imply a more sophisticated sense of humor. Looking at my school, I never would have guessed.
