    Actually, I recall many experts predicting a worldwide computer collapse after Y2K. This would have resulted in riots, anarchy and, inevitibly, wrist grabbing. Had that happened, Aikido would have saved the day, no doubt.

    Lightbulb Aikido Vs. Jujitsu (brazilian)
    Its one of the favorite topic in our DOJO. What can an AIKIDOKA do with a BRAZILIAN JUJITSU practioner?

    With my back on the mat, I learned that an Aikidoka should be aware of the following things:

    1. The punches - with your back on the mat it will be hard to parry it, one should be fast to apply the locks. faster than the punches. Try not to keep his head close to yours if you want to avoid the punches. See number 3
    2. The leg locks - don't let them do this.
    3. The hold that makes your head closer to his - I had a hard time applying the locks under this position. I pushed his head first then applied the lock.
    4. If all things fail in real life don't forget to gouge the eyes and bite into their ears or any part of the body for the matter.
    Bolded my favorite part there. Just remember, if everything fails, just stop thinking about real life and fantasize biting and gouging your way to victory!

    I've concluded this to be defining of a martial artist. You find the principles that make the art, then your technique begins to reflect the principles. Then, your movements beyond the techniques you've been shown come to reflect the art
    I kinda like that actually - it's a way to blend and learn from other styles while also keeping heritage and distinction.

    I have to say, it seems like a perfect illustration of the delusional "I IZ MODERN SAMURAI WARRIOR" mindset.
    What name do you use over at aikiweb?

    2. The leg locks - don't let them do this.

    This has to be the single best thought out piece of martial arts advice ever dispensed over the intraweb

    I think BJJ is dangerous outside its boundary of one on one. See one go shooting for the legs in a streetfight and do his thing on the ground? Judo would be better for one could stay upright to deal with others. Aikido trains that, I really think most of you are obsessed by the gloved gladiator type of ring fight and imagine your self magically guarded by the powers of the ones that win these type of fights.

    I think you do too if you think fighting standing up is going to help against multiple attackers. You are also obsessed with the deadly street gangs which roam around attacking individual people for no reason and some romantic notion that some people could easily dispense with all the attackers.
