Re: Fight? What fight?

I think it's OK to debate in a forum. Isn't that what forums are for?

I thought it was an excellent example of kuzushi. And also, a sensei I had in the past said all the time that it was important to be "sticky," or not be in such a hurry to resolve an attack.

On the mat and in life, I tend to rush. I rush to understand a workplace conflict, rush to apologize, rush to find a technique in randori... and I do this so that I can end the ambiguity.

It takes a lot of courage to let the ambiguity play itself out when it's appropriate to do so.
