1 Review
Conflict is an unavoidable aspect of living. The late renowned aikido master Terry Dobson, together with Victor Miller, present aikido as a basis for conflict resolution. Not all conflicts are contests, say Dobson and Miller, and not all conflicts are equally threatening. Finding more options to deal with conflict can change how we deal with other people. "Attack-tics" is a system of conflict resolution based on the principles of aikido, the non-violent martial art created by master Morihei Ueshiba after World War II.--Adapted from back cover.
