    As far as Aikido and BJJ its definitely nothing new. When I first started BJJ there was an Aikido guy on our "team". And LeavitK was also an Aikido yudansha when he started training with me in Hohenfels.

    Regardless a Judo/BJJ mix is way better than an Aikido/BJJ mix any day in my unbiased opinion.
    Hey brother, I'm good - in train-up for Trashcanistan, although my gun ain't gonna be as big as yours! How are you doing? I'll be downrange this fall. You still gonna be there?

    There's an old fart in our club, a little younger than I (I think) who holds yudansha in aikido and judo - and is damn close to getting his BJJ black belt too. Now THAT is a combination! LOL

    Shoot me an email at jeffrey.cook@us.army.mil, if you don't mind. Stay safe brother!

    I'd definitely be interested in seeing this set, especially as a former Aikidoka who burnt out and switched over to BJJ.

    I would definitely say there are some similarity and overlap between the two. Certain throws are shared and I use some Aikido wrist locks regularly while rolling to break grips and occasionally as a submission. Also, the idea of moving off the line and using strength/momentum against your attacker is a shared basic tenet.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that the two styles mesh seamlessly or are of equal value in real world, fully alive, fighting. But considering the historical basis of the two arts I don't think it is that surprising that they share some elements that could be worked together in a cohesive way.
