Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art form deriving from its more ancient cousin Judo. It teaches the clever tactic of using the opponent’s weight again him.
By using Jiu-Jitsu, the smaller man can use the momentum already created in the attack and force the assailant to continue in the direction he was going then land him on his keister.
In the same way, it is never a good idea to stop someone’s argument head on. To say, “You are wrong and here is why“ leads to an inevitable clash. Instead, we should begin where they are. Acknowledge any validity we can recognize or at least an understanding of why they believe as they do.
In his book, “How to win friends and influence people,” Dale Carnegie says, “You can never win an argument.” If you lose you lose. If you succeed in showing the other person how wrong they are you will hurt their feelings and they will resent you. You lose again.
A clearly better way is to begin with any common ground you can find. Carnegie suggests this as a starting point, “I don’t blame you one iota for feeling as you do. If I were you, I would undoubtedly feel just as you do.” You may be thinking, “Because if I were you, I too would be an idiot,” but that is best left unsaid.
The video you are about to watch contains a crucial lesson on how to avoid physical conflict by talking your way out of it using verbal Jiu-Jitsu.
