Re: Aiki strategy outside the dojo

My grandnephew recently turned six, and like most six year olds, he hates to take his medicines. His grandma (my sister) was holding the cup of syrup and kept calling him, and he was ignoring her. His mother grabbed him and started pushing him toward my sister, and when they both thought that they had him, he suddenly stopped resisting his mother and started running faster than she was pushing. He escaped.
He finally gave in when he was told that he was not going to visit his best friend until he swallowed his syrup.
Aikido works because it's based on logic and cleverness.
That's why six year olds do it without even knowing it.
