The last in line is sometimes the pack leader.
The pack of wolves and the rules of the pack.
Observation: A group of wolves.
The three forwards are old and sick, they walk forward to adjust the pace of the group in case of running, so that they do not stay behind them.
The next five are the strongest and the best, they are tasked with protecting the vanguard in the event of an attack.
The package in between is always protected against any attack.
The five behind them are also among the strongest and the best; they are charged with protecting the back in the event of an attack.
The last one is the boss.
He makes sure no one is left behind.
Keeps the package unified and on the same path.
He is always ready to run in any direction to protect and serve as a “Bodyguard” to the whole group.
Just in case someone wants to know what it really means to be a leader.
It’s not about being in front.
It means taking care of the team.”
This description is not really so romantic because this description of the wolf pack is a Fake Story!
Wolves are not like men, they do not allow the most stupid and weak to be pack leaders!
Those who know wolves know that the first in line is always the alpha female of the pack, the dominant female of the group.
What you see in the picture is a pack of 25 timber wolf wolves hunting bison in northern Canada.
The herd, led by the alpha female, travels in a single row through the snow to save energy.
The original caption also explains that these wolves are the only ones who can hunt prey 10 times their size, and it does not mention that the first wolves in the row are sick.
In fact, the first wolf is the alpha female of the herd, the dominant female of the herd.
So you’re going to get a fake this?
No it’s real but in reality the hierarchy is not quite how it’s told but I wanted to use it and transport it in a sporting field.
The last in line is sometimes the pack leader is somehow a metaphor but that beyond the words in the end still contains an important message.
This fake story that circulates a lot online – especially on social networks – represents a photo of a pack of wolves walking in a row in the snow, with a caption that explains that the first three wolves in the row are the oldest and sickest ones: they were put in front of everyone so as to give way to the rest of the pack and not be left behind, and possibly be the first to have to face a possible attack, protecting others.
Immediately afterwards there would be the strongest wolves to protect the females, “the most precious asset of the pack”, while the last wolf would be the pack leader, who follows from behind to make sure that everyone is well.
The photo is authentic: it was taken in Wood Buffalo National Park, Canada and actually shows a pack of 25 wolves moving for a hunting trip: but the reconstruction of the positions of the wolves and their meaning is wrong.
On the BBC website, where it was originally published, the photo is described with a caption that does not coincide with the one you read around these days.
What you see in the photo, says BBC, is “a pack of 25 timberwolf wolves hunting bison in northern Canada”; “The pack, led by the female alpha, travels in a single row through the snow to save energy.”
The caption also explains that these wolves are the only ones that manage to hunt prey 10 times their size, and does not mention that the first wolves in the row are sick.
On the contrary: the first wolf is the alpha female of the pack, or the dominant female of the pack.
On the tatami and in the ring
When it comes to martial arts (AM) and combat sports (SPC) you know that when you’re in the tatami or ring you’re there with your opponent and you’re “alone” but that’s not really the case.
In fact, behind this apparent solitude there is a whole team that allows you to provide you with a suitable physical and technical preparation also a psychological training that allows you to get loaded and focused to the match or the race and that allows you to get certain results.
Certain performances are not only achieved with athletic preparation that is fundamental but also a determination and focus that needs to be taken care of, your body and mind must be aligned.
Everyone in your team as in the herd has a specific role and everyone needs to know what to do to get to your destination and conquer territories and “prey” that in this case are tournaments and trophies.
History in sport teaches us how great champions inexplicably begin to rack up defeats after a departure by a team member or team member, which provided him with that emotional, physical, psychological boost to go beyond himself.
Always pay attention to your team, sometimes YOUR pack leader is just the last in line!
Stay Tuned! The last in line is sometimes the pack leader!
