After many years of experience in both judo shiai,punching/kicking art, and aikibudo I think that "fakes", feints, or false attacks intended to be bait for traps do not work against the proper strategy.

If you break distance with a fake attack... THANK YOU!... because a properly trained budoka will answer with a REAL waza. I answer the intent and beginning of an attack, not the end form.

What many think of as "fakes" should really be real attacks that have possible alternatives "linked" to them in case the opponent successfuly changes the attack with their counter or evasion, etc.
