    hi there GS
    a mate told me to join his MMA class, bcs they did a lot of bjj and muay, but atm he has a slipped disc and I didnt have time xD

    Well IMO the Aikido techs can be used in that situation of groundfighting, but....did you find Suwari Waza from your normal training "useful"?

    I'll explain, 2 of my mates can't do suwari propperly. They injured their knees doing it and now, one of them can display like 5 min of suwari and then he must stop, is painful for him.

    The other one... has to use surgery in the knee and now he canīt do suwari, nor walking without problems.

    I was more comfotable I think but I'd owe that to the other dudes probably never being in that position. The minute w started they kinda half stood up and came at me where as I stayed lower, I found it was easier to grab them and move them.

    Once we were locked up or whatever you call it I don't think it really made a difference.

    In my brief study of Aikido, I did find I got a decent introduction to body mechanics. It was more concepts that would augment another martial art than techniques that would actually work in a fight. I did meet a few people who studied Aikido and were scrappers. Back then, I assumed they could fight because they studied Aikido. Maybe they were just scrappers.

    Aikido is a complement to other MAs, but not much use in its own. I'm sure there are aikido techniques that can be useful to most grapplers or subwrestlers.

    However, training aikido means doing a lot of things outside practising and applying techniques. Many of those things are what many people (yes, me too) find uninteresting, irrelevant, or downright silly. Which is exactly why I don't know when I'll train aikido again.

    I took two more Karate classes after I started BJJ at my current gym. I realize thats not Akido, but meh.

    One of the guys asked if I always smiled before and after I get tapped. I guess I am just having fun, even when I am getting my ass kicked.

    Welcome to the club GuiltySpark. I am three months in and addicted.
