Hi Rene
Not too sure as they are mighty fast!!!
Looks a bit like a tenchi nage or something.
I like the way the squirrel on the floor plays dead in the hope the other one goes away. No such luck so gets up to fight again only to be put on the flor again. It feels like what I do when Sensei picks me as uke. he doesn't fall for the playing dead act either
Very funny clip with nature at it's best (2 cute furry animals trying to beat each other up)

Tony

Re: squirrel aikido

yeah I've noticed you do that tony . I think you're right though tenchinage it is. you can tell by the way uke breakfalls!
I wonder what difference to you centre and balance a big fluffy squirrell tail would make to technique? mmmm.... may have to attach one to my Gi.
