Re: Aikido With A Dog

Hi everyone
As a postie here in England and a 3rd Dan I feel I have enough experience to tell you the best technique for dog attacks. It isn't nikyo, irimi nage or anything like that it's..........................
Ruuuuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!

Re: Aikido With A Dog

In order to clarify about the Aikido technique Tony has told us, you have to do just to simple movements:

1. Tenkan
2. Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi, Irimi, irimi, irimi,......

Re: Aikido With A Dog

A quick yonkyo on my german shepherd's nose made her let go of my hand pretty fast.

She's okay. She got a little excited about a toy I was holding, so excited that words weren't having any effect! The yonkyo only hurt her for a moment, and we were friends again in short order.

I'm pretty sure she forgot about it long before I stopped bleeding.

Re: Aikido With A Dog

I've had some aikido with dog experiences lately. I've been riding by on my bike and been charged by the same beast (think Toto in wiz of oz) 4 times over the last 2 months. The owner (taking dog for a walk) just refuses to use the leash. The first three times I made sure to get the dog between me and the curb protecting it from ongoing traffic. Pre-aikido my normal impulse would have been to position so as to push the monster into the oncoming traffic (I have a long mutual dislike relationship with canines, mostly involving me bleeding and limping). The fourth time the owner and dog were across the street, dog sees me and comes across the road directly at me. Dog doesn't see truck. But got very lucky, the truck missed by an inch or so. Its a somewhat interesting problem in connection trying to get a dog from your outside where its likely to die back to the inside without really being able to see it. I have no idea how to protect a totally suicidal dog-uke. : )

that's the worst technique imaginable.

You need to make yourself small and stay put. If it comes within what you feel is a comfortable ma'ai irimi, go for the throat and take it down. Just make sure you don't let go. Let your hand slide up to the jaw bones and you and the dog will be safe. Even a large dog will go down if you get under it's center.

I play with my dog a lot and as long as I position myself to get under her center I get the upper hand. If not, I usually end up taking a fall.

Re: Aikido With A Dog

Ian....you need to specify "miniature" poodles. Have you ever seen the size of a standard poodle? Not only are they considered one of the most intelligent breeds around, but they are considered excellent guard dogs. (though not genetically agressive).

Tony... never run from a dog....unless there is a tree in the imediate vicinity and you know how to climb it....otherwise, to a dog a runner is prey and it will give chase. Larger dogs will always be able to outrun you :-)

Ive used aikido on Buddy (70 pounds of sharpei, german shepard, pitt and rodeshian mix) in play, including the holding lower jaw-grabbing tongue thingy. However, I taught him as a puppy that I am alpha and he will cease and desist when I so say. He always has. (By the way, he scares the sh*t out of everyone, but he really is a lover:-)

I have a cat called Pebbles (sorry if the cat thing is a bit off topic here, but her attacks can be very painful indeed) and the best thing to do when she attacks is to relax (seriously!) Makes me think of keiko every time

Ihave the same problem with an evil genius cat called Mr Lao (no, really, he's bond villain standard!). They stop because they think they finally succeeded in killing you!
Dog seems to have the same trouble with him (see Animals can do Aikido too!!! thread)
