Does an attaacker go through all this in his/her mind before the attack? Or do they just attack? And do attacks always hit their mark?

*Phil
I don't know how to answer that Phillip. If i was a 'realistic' attacker myself, I would have to have the real intention of hitting the guy, no matter what he did.

Maybe some people have unpredictable mood swings that allows them to spontaneously attack at will, but I don't.

As for always hitting the mark. If my defender is good enough, he won't get hit. At least not where it was intended to hit.

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