As almost everyone knows,the martial arts were designed so that one could defend oneself against an attack, and also for attack.These systems were of course created with a human being in mind.What then if a martial arts expert were attacked by an animal such as a lion,vicious dog,leopard...or what about an elephant? After all a person has arms and legs like he does,but animals are different.
