Re: Aiki strategy outside the dojo

If you mirror the physical/emotional state of another person or animal, you can manipulate them more easily.

I used to cut the cat's nails and I'd wait till it was really relaxed or sleeping, then I'd go up to it and and casually place the clippers around a nail and begin clipping. That technique worked a lot better than grabbing the cat and pinning it with force and struggling to clip all its nails as it resisted me with all it's might.
