You mean IRL attackers don't throw a punch or grab my wrist, then stand there rooted and grounded and static waiting and waiting and waiting for me to take their balance??? I'm...shocked
Well, I admit my real life experience is limited... so I may be mistaken... but I *think* someone trying to hit me IRL would probably actually hit *me,* rather than the air two feet away. And a grab would probably have at least as much intent as I use when playing with my cats. But, again, I'm just guessing here...
