comment Have you seen a fight between *top* Judo and Aikido practitioners?
But to answer your question, I trained standing jointlocks (but not aikido) for ~a decade, and many training partners in judo, karate, and BJJ have trained aikido. I'm not sure what you find overly critical.

That's immaterial to my comment.

-1 doesn't answer the question, pure theoretical speculation and claims of being too deadly to test

comment Do Aikido wrist locks work against stronger opponents?
So would I be correct in saying that you've executed one wristlock in one jiujitsu (BJJ?) class, when it was against the rules, during groundfighting?

Why did you hold on so long once he started to tap?

Have you ever tried these in a situation like judo randori?

comment How to deal with a substantially shorter opponent?
"You have 8 inches over him, forget the jab." The meaning here is unclear to me.

I'm no boxer, but circling out and using uppercuts to punish his blitzes sounds like it could be a start.

What about the classes you tried made them seem geared towards the average man?

comment MMA/UFC statistical analysis
However, it sounds like you may be looking for more granular FightMetric-style analysis, e.g. number of head kicks landed, number of significant strikes, etc. Unfortunately I think the only source of that data is proprietary.

This BS.net thread also discusses how spotty, unreliable, and variously-arranged data for MMA competition is.

comment MMA/UFC statistical analysis
I have a PDF of a paper by Daniele Bollelli, M.A. in the Journal of Asian Martial Arts, Volume 12, Number 3 from 2003, entitled Mixed Martial Arts: A Technical Analysis of the Ultimate Fighting Championship in its Formative Years. That's a good start.

@Sardathrion What's the more or less?

comment Have you seen a fight between *top* Judo and Aikido practitioners?
@Sardathrion I consider the exact opposite to be aikidoka testing their art in MMA competition or sparring, or something akin to it. Is that what you mean?

Check the links in this Bullshido thread.

@SeanDuggan Honestly I'm not sure where to start with adding links.

comment Is there a reason that the red part of the belt is on the left side?
On second read I'm confused. I don't have a red tip on my BJJ belt; I have a black tip, and I wear it on the right. I stand by my earlier comment but that's a bit weird.

comment Arm bar crushes the groin
@TimothyAWiseman They're against the rules in judo and IBJJF BJJ. NAGA apparently allows it but they're kind of the Wild West. My point with 4 is to short-circuit potential white belt complaints about elbows in the groin. I try to avoid ball crushage but A) there's a bit that just happens and B) not all pain due to inexact armbars is actually the testicles, but just the fact that it's an elbow and elbows are uncomfortable just about anywhere they're jamming into you.
