A Reminder

It is funny how different things you run in to reminds you of Aikido training...

So I was at the Carolina Tiger Rescue today and when we were getting close to the tiger cage they warned us about the big male "marking his territory" and that if he lifts his tail and backs up towards you, then you should move to the side, don't try to back up...

That's the same advice we get from Shihan in a randori, if you see someone being thrown towards you, don't move back, move to the side.
