Gozo Shioda if I remember correctly. I think it's mentioned in Aikido Shugyo.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

I think sometimes people play with their dogs and can "win" -- and then say to themselves, I could beat this dog if I really had to. What they don't realize is that the dog is playing with them -- the dog knows that going too hard means noone to play with eventually.

yes, i agree

My dogs tend to be docile and affectionate. But I've seen some situations where they really turned nasty. i.e: chasing the postman , or during a dog's turf war.

I've thought up some methods that'll PROBABLY work against angry dogs, but I'd rather not try it myself.

The road is long...
The path is steep...
So hire a guide to show you the shortcuts

Greetings, Juho...

There is an essay in Richard Heckler's book, "Aikido and the New Warrior" that deals with an aikidoka who uses aiki principles with domesticated wolves (if I remember correctly...) I reviewed the book on this website a few years ago... it is under the "book review" link, under the "essays" topic. The book deals with a number of situations where aikido principles can be applied...

Hope this helps..

John

p.s. sorry if this gets posted twice; my browser crashed when I sent it the first time.

That would be O. Fred Donaldson. Really interesting guy. His notion of "play" is quite something. He's applied his ideas regarding "play" with animals like wolves (some domesticated, others wild, I believe) as well as many other animals including lions, bears, and many other animals. I personally have had fun "playing" with him...

His website can be found here:

yeah, aikido could work on animals. a good tsuki with a jo should work on a dog just as well as a person, provided you can get a clean shot.

That "clean shot" is the real problem, of course.

Animals Id rather not blenb with

Most of this has been on quadrepeds.

I would not like to try this with chimpanzees or gorrillas ( their arm strength is fantastic).

Polar bears are the worlds largest living land based predator, and I think the best way to deal with them is to be in a vehicle that get far away.

Now, if there was an animal from, say Jurrasic park, easu to deal with.

Bonk the computer animator over the head, end of problem.

Cheers,

Jamie
