What Was Needed To Stay Safe

Uncategorized Dec 13, 2020

Today I used my training again. Not to save myself from injury while falling, which has happened many times for me and many of our students. Ukemi is a wonderful thing.

I used my training against a dog that came charging out snarling and barking intent on attacking my dog. I heard and saw the dog start it’s charge from the yard on the other side of the street. I quickly pulled Mox to my left side, putting my right forward and extending the leash as much as I could in my right hand.

I started to swing the leash like a kusari fundo. As the dog came at us I just kept swinging at its head and moving so I stayed between the dog and Moxie keeping her shielded. I actually was yelling “get back” at the dog. The owner got the dog, apologized and Mox and I went home unharmed.

In those moments the training really paid off. I just did what was necessary to keep the dog at bay and Mox and I safe. I wasn't afraid, just focused and determined that I would do what was needed for our safety.

The training here at Shinobi Science has given me the great gift of learning how to be more aware and how to stay safe in whatever situation occurs. It has also taught me how to resolve a situation as peacefully as possible with minimal or no physical conflict. I have learned to use my thoughts, words and actions to protect me from outside dangers like today and from inner dangers like negative, harmful thoughts toward myself and others.

We look forward to training with you.
