Do Judo, if you want excellent grappling that still has some Japanese/martial artsy traditions. Aikido is not very effective. It is most effective as an add-on to a good foundation in basic grappling. It also has to be trained correctly, which most aikido clubs don't do. And even then it's application is limited to controlling an opponent who is not actively trying to kick your ass (i.e. they are only half heartedly resisting/attacking).
Go to style vs style in the video section, and look up Daitoryu Akido master vs. team Barbosa Japan watch video and form your own opinion. Then report back to us ASAP! Oh yeah! welcome to bullshido.
O for the love of God. If he exsist. That is not Daitoryu or aikido. That guy said he was a ki master and he is full of ****. I have never ever seen aikido or aikijujutsu do anything like that horse ****. For one he is swatting at bugs when he attacks and two if he is aikido or aikijutsu then how did anyone train him like that. No No NO NO. If that was real daitoryu then i will kill myself with a cooking spoon. Aikijujutsu is the art were jujutsu and then judo came from please do not believe that was aiki in anyway, shape or form.

What the hell do you want proved? Do you think judo and ju jitsu came first? If so I think you had better do a little more research.

You'r a fucking moron if you think Aikido came before all the ancient styles of Jujutsu that existed in Japan. And Judo came from other styles of Jujutsu, not Aiki. Oh wait, you said AikiJUJUTSU so you can try and weasle out of that fact. Whatever. You can't prove ****.

You don't have to try **** to know you shouldn't eat it, dumbass. Besides, if pulled your head out of your ass you'd find that most of the people who bag on Aikido have tried it. Of course, not me. I mean, I only did Hapkido and Defensive tactics (which involves a lot of standing wristlocks).
So if you haven't tried it please shut up.
Mods: Please to note, I was not addressing the noob/op here in newbietown.
