AIKIDO IN EVERYDAY LIFE TERRY DOBSON PDF

But an approach surprisingly close to this in spirit — admittedly without the somersaults — lies at the heart of a book entitled Aikido In Everyday Life, by Terry Dobson and Victor Miller, published 35 years ago and due for rediscovery. But it may prove more useful. And even if you "win" a battle with a partner or friend, the damage to the relationship may feel like a loss. You could use the tactic they call "doing nothing": pause, temporarily offering no response while your opponent exhausts his arguments, or even starts to argue himself round to your side. Or you could choose " aiki ", the highest principle of aikido, which translates roughly as "blending" with the attacker, then turning his or her energies away from confrontation to resolution.

But an approach surprisingly close to this in spirit — admittedly without the somersaults — lies at the heart of a book entitled Aikido In Everyday Life, by Terry Dobson and Victor Miller, published 35 years ago and due for rediscovery.

But it may prove more useful. And even if you "win" a battle with a partner or friend, the damage to the relationship may feel like a loss. You could use the tactic they call "doing nothing": pause, temporarily offering no response while your opponent exhausts his arguments, or even starts to argue himself round to your side.

Or you could choose " aiki ", the highest principle of aikido, which translates roughly as "blending" with the attacker, then turning his or her energies away from confrontation to resolution. First, seek "confluence" with your opponent, for example by conceding that his feelings are understandable, or that she might have a point. Then, use the surprised pause that follows to take the lead, reframing the problem as a shared one.

In one of their examples, a fight between neighbours over a dog gets recast as one about the challenges of living at close quarters. This all sounds rather mystical, I know; becoming a black belt in everyday aikido would surely take years of practice. But any of us could train ourselves to respond, when tempers flare, with an internal question: is this conflict a contest? You could just ask your attacker to pass the roast potatoes instead.
