Intro to psy-ki-do


Inspired by The Men Who Stare at Goats, for the next week or so I'll be writing a series of articles on what I'm calling Psy-ki-do. Sort of the soft science, pseudo-science, or psychological side of combative arts. The first post is already available at my newsletter - if you missed signing up for that, you can catch this newsletter at the archive here, and you can sign up for the upcoming newsletters here.

Upcoming psy-ki-do ideas include...
  • how to trick an attacker into total commitment (a dream come true for aikidoka)
  • how to sap the opponent's will to fight by making him think you are a predator and making him feel like your prey
  • how to be a better instructor by getting in synch with your students
