Re: Internal Power/Strength (IS/IP) in relation to non-human contact

For those of you who have developed Internal Power/Strength (IS/IP), I'm wondering how it applies to non-humans, i.e. to inanimate objects (such as when lifting a heavy table/rock) and to animals (for instance when 'play-wresting' with a large dog, primate or bear).

I know this question may sound a little bizarre, but I'm wondering about the generalisability and/or limitations of IS/IP. And perhaps whether there are variations of the of IS/IP?

Thanks in advance.
Not at all! Some of us have mused on the primate question. See thread: http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20082 pointing to link: http://youtu.be/Rgurbo_4bqg

As to limitations, I recommend not using IS/IP techniques against (with?) inanimate objects not because I know much about IS/IP but because I have some assumptions about inanimate objects.

Regards,
Anthony
