Re: Aikido and jujutsu in everyday conflicts
Even if the drug-dealers vanished,the question still remains. How would I deal with this situation if I encountered it?How do I apply dojo priniples to resolve the situation? Nobody can ever sucessfully pre-plan an absolute strategy in any conflict. I would talk to them. Just say "Hi"when you walk by. Let them engage you in a conversation. The street has it's own ethics, and if you talk to people,you will discover them,and their stares would make sense. The understanding from their point of view would give you a natural way of carrying yourself around them that makes you a non-target. Recieve,blend,redirect,and go on about your business.
