Re: Article: True Self Defense by George S. Ledyard
Mr Seibert- I read a small test relating to that most Zen of questions somewhere. I'm not sure if it was here, AikidoFAQ or elsewhere, but it was this. Aim an obvious strike at your friend that won't harm him (a slow slap to the cheek or similar). If he blocks, ask him who he was protecting. If he doesn't, ask him who got hit. I'd love to hear the answer- it's been puzzling me for a few months now!
