While we're on the topic, has anyone noticed that aikido and judo throws tend to end in different kinds of falls from uke. A lot of aiki falls end up smearing uke facedown into the mat in an armbar or else throwing uke away and letting go of him. Judo throws tend to throw uke straight downward into the mat with tori still holding on.
Folks whose minds jive with aikido tend to fear judo and judo-types tend to hate aiki-like falls.
Of course these are generalizations - but has anyone else noticed this?
