    Thanks...

    I trained in Nihon Goshin Aikido for about three years many years back. If you have any specific questions I could probably help out. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who is serious about learning how to fight or who wants to get into any kind of shape. Nihon Goshin Aikido is much less flowery and philosophical than most Aikido but at the end of the day it’s still Aikido so the majority of the training is very compliant and non resistant. If you do a search here for it you should turn up a few old threads where it has come up in the past.

    I did Nihon Goshin Aikido years ago, too. Nihon = Japanese, Goshin = self-defense (basically). Good as Aikido goes (insert your own joke here). It's more like an Aikijujutsu style, not aikido (it's not decended from Ueshiba).

    Some interesting techniques and applications -- a couple of good nikkyo variants and the most evil shiho nage I've ever experienced, for example. Much harder than regular aikido and many of the techniques seem quite capable of seriously messing up joints. But the training style isn't exactly Judo or BJJ, and there's basically no groundwork and little fully resistive training. It did, however, give me awesome ukemi and a few little tricks I've used in BJJ.
