Greetings all,

I have just started wrestling and someone suggested I get into either judo or JuiJitsu.

I am not sure which style would be best and would appreciate any info and help regarding this.

Basically I want to learn the best ways in which I can put someone in a submission hold as soon as possible, which style would be best for that then??

Thanks in advance.

Ms Indiana.

Ms Indiana, I'm assuming your a woman,
Juijitsu has loads of submission holds. Visit a school and take a few free leasons to see if it what you really like. I'm not going to deter you from Juijitsu but most women that I have known and tought prefer the stand up style MA. There is a lot of ground work and close wrestling style work outs in juijitsu...very physical. Most of the arts have submission hold, some more than others. If Juijitsu does not interest you after a class or two take a look at Aikido and Hapkido. Aikido is a beautiful art with lots of throws and locks using your opponents energy. Hapkido has many of the same but it is a Korean art and in turn you will learn to kick as well. Anyway those are the two arts that I would recommend to you if there is a dojo in your area. Good luck.

Aikido is good in its own right, but far from a 'complete system'. Striking or atemi waza is not usually included in the Aiki arts, but in fact O'Sensei did include not only hand strikes but kicks as well in his Aikido..[/QUOTE]
Greetings Senseilou.
I was just wandering if the strikes (atemi waza) are effective.
I spoke to an aikido sensie last night and I asked about striking and he mentioned atemi.He explained to me that he only teaches that to students who have gained black belt status.
I was wondering how effective these strikes are and if possible explain what types of strikes they resemble.
