Re: Aikido and jujutsu in everyday conflicts

IMO, keeping Ki conciousness is a great way to help you deal with any situation. Tohei sensei (one of the rare Japanese who mentions being in the army during WW2) felt it kept him safe from everything - harassment from aggressive NCOs during basic training, to actual, flying bullets during combat.

Sounds hard to believe, but it worked for him, and surviving some of his experiences gives him an awful lot of credibility with me.

No matter what you believe, it's the strength of your faith in it that helps you cope.
