Guys, this is a great time to push out Dobson/Miller senseis' "Aikido In Everyday Life" book. Tons of great ideas.

The principles are amazingly applicable to all situations, but the heart of aikido is worth remembering: harmony, right? Take your attacker's posture, lead them to a "happy" place for both of you, and try to restore your attacker's humanity ("Thank you for your help" works well).

This random spouting brought to you by,
