    Of course, we didn't really see any true randori, or groundwork. Looks to be more self-defense oriented from that video.
    From memory they do a number of "self defence" scenarios from attacks from chains etc. Again how realistic that is is open to question, but hey, turn up and see what they are like

    As has been said, it's a mix of Judo, Trad JJ and Aikido. There are also examples of Line Up, (Aikido) 3 to 5 Man Attacks, which includes an emphasis on using the Uke as a Shield or Blocking Obstacle (on the floor). Also, some patterned technique and some more advanced so it's a building block approach. The Self Defence element is also clear rather than an open 'live' approach but that may suit depending on what is being sought. If it's an introductory level MA, then it's fine and can lead on to other MA Forms which may suit better.

    A lot depends on the instructor and the students. If it - and they - appeal to you, then you've little to lose and something to gain. If it doesn't appeal, then you can clear it from your options and can find something more appropriate elsewhere.

    Anyway, let us know how it goes and what you think.
