Ai symbol Re: Techniques Are Boring

I believe that the more you advance, the more one should be looking to break out of technique. At the minimum, break out of what technique you are going to do in advance of your response, but then eventually attempt to move in or out, left or right and as you blend with their attack and the "technique" that you recognize or possibly one that you do not will appear. You and your Uke will be left wondering what that technique was and can you do it again? If you were truly in the moment-probably not!
