Re: Aikido With A Dog

Aikido with dogs is great; irimi nage always seems to work for me (though be careful of their backs). Ever read Aikido and the New Warrior? A chapter on aikido with wolves. (could be a new Kevin Costner film eh?)

With cats it is far harder. They are fluid and have a much higher nerve transmission rate than humans so you can't get away with speed alone. However it can be done if you blend well.


P.S. anybody ever tried it with a Tiger or elephant? (aikido I mean)
