    DAMN, that name is LOOOONG! Should just abbreviate it and add the word "system" at the end, that will make it sound a lot more D34D7Y.

    (ex. The D.R.A.J.J. System)

    sorry for the delay

    The founder of Aikido sent out many people to teach. Most Daitoryu people are more conservative in nature. They view the art as something that is difficult to train in large numbers, due to the nature of the student/ teacher relationship.

    Most old school Japanese arts are like that.

    Hope it helps !

    Now that you're on here, could I ask you your opinion on the differences in end-result between Aikido and DRAJJ training, in terms of general fighting ability? This came up a couple of weeks back on another thread and I was meaning to mention it to you then...

    If one were to listen to the internet (well, YouTube comments, really) they'd have it that Aikido = gay hippie **** that doesn't work, whilst DRAJJ = for hardcore, blood-n-guts mofos who can bang (martially-speaking) all freaking day.

    It's probably quite not as gay yet.

    Add a leather hakama and you've got a hit.

    Sweet. I will spend the next 15 minutes or so reading that (occasionally scrolling back up to remind myself what certain Japanese terms refer to). Thanks. :sex:

    I am studying aikijujutsu. The art is very intricate and involved. The arresting techniques are unlike anything I have ever studied before. I am waiting for something to click with me because I enjoy this ancient art very much. I understand the basic techniquies of BJJ, wrestling, Judo, etc..., but aikijujutsu is something else altogether.

    Would you care to elaborate?
    In what way is it different, is it more effective, more deadly maybe? Is it more "spiritual"? How is it diferent from aikido? How is the "early neutralization of an attack" (i quote this from the encyclopedia article) done?
    In other words, why would I (considering I know nearly nothing about the art) like to study it other then "it is different than other martial arts"?
