One For The Aikido Guys
Here's some Randori at Tim Cartmell's Shen Wu Dojo. Tim's system teaches the internal arts-- Bagua, Tai Chi Chuan and Hsing-Yi, as well as Brazilian Jujitsu. The pace at which they practice is excellent for learning and a generally injury-free training session.
Here is a fine example of flow work in stand-up grappling. After one or two attempted techniques, the opponent's hand is seized and Meynard begins to apply Sankyo. He reinforces it by barring across the tricep tendon (TW 11-12) and completes the takedown.
