Judo Vs Aikido (Which Is Better?)

The difference between aikido and juo is that Judo is a competitive martial art that includes live sparring and techniques used against fully resisting partners. It focuses on standing throws, sweeps, and take downs with some ground work submissions. It is very effective for self defense.
