Non of those arts are anywhere near being good or easy or particularly effective as a means of self defence. It is only very recently (as of this new year) that I've taken up BJJ.
What's interesting to me is that the years of study I've enjoyed in Japanese martial traditions are in quite a stark contrast to BJJ and, hand on heart, after just 4 lessons what I've found is that I already feel more competent about bringing someone to the ground quickly and effectively - all be it very noobishly - than compared to all the years I spent studying and teaching Aiki.
Anyway, back on topic."To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

I'm curious how closely related to Taido Karate this stuff is? Taido is a karate style here in Atlanta that has produced successful Kickboxing amateurs.

It often comes across as a judgement of the arts, systems and skills, because poor,or often no pressure testing has a direct relation to the arts effectiveness.
I would say this is particularly true in TMA, where lack of pressure testing has effected the whole long-term development of some arts. In this case, it allows a move from individuals being unable to apply practical techniques under pressure, through to impractical techniques eventually being taught.
You can see all three stages described within my own style field:
1. Aikido has almost no pressure testing, near enough anywhere. As such, the art as a whole has become much less practical for actual conflict, and a lot of impractical techniques are taught.
2. Kali where I practice it has (as yet) almost no pressure testing, so students where I practice will be unlikely to pull it off for real. The art worldwide has lots of pressure testing, so as an art is still largely teaching a lot of practical technique.
3. Muay thai is being practiced under pressure in our class, and worldwide, so will turn out people able to apply it, both from our class and worldwide.
When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!

Sending to you a public link to a longer video. I put about 20 different sequencess filmed during different parts of training.
The video includes tests, drills, exercises, scenarios etc... done at traing halls, discos, or other locations.
No particular order of the clips. Also no explanations are given to the sequences included in the videos.
So those are taken out of content.
I do hope this link will function if not please let me know. I am seldom at the forum beacuse of work so it is easiest to get in tocuh by send ing an e-mail.
Regarding the concept it is basicly:
* cover - to minimise the demage
* counter as soon as possible - to sensitive areas
* Get to safety / make a distance
We are trying to counter / hit or what ever you call that with open hands.
And no: I do not have any knowlegde regarding MMA and / or BJJ. Beside reading a few articles.
