I didn't train today, but I did go to the dojo to drop something off and decided to stay for a bit and watch the kids class. Sensei asked a very interesting question which I believe I've heard before but not sure if I ever heard the answer. The question he asked is when does a technique begin. There were various answers, one kid said it begins when you start defending your self. Another said something to the effect that it begins when you are attacked. Sensei's answer was that the technique never ends.
