comment What are effective self-defense martial arts for smaller woman
@Freedo Gosh that's weird, I work on self-defense scenarios in BJJ class every week: defending against punches, distance management, controlling a striker, getting up from the ground, escaping positions where the opponent can strike...

comment Do Aikido wrist locks work against stronger opponents?
Could you link to an example of shorinji kempo randori? Because nothing that you describe is anything like judo randori, making your advice both baseless and useless for this question.

comment What Defines Something As A Martial Art?
The fact that some aikido styles have some competition doesn't mean that aikido usually involves sparring. Most aikidoka do not spar.

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.

comment How to deal with a substantially shorter opponent?
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?
