Isn't pain designed to work with your reflex?

For example, if someone was to jerk your hair by surprised, you will be thrown in that direction.

But if he telegraphed it, you would already be ready in anticipation and therefore have overriden your reflex to fall and preserve your scalp.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
