It was a couple of yrs ago I realized there is a difference between imposing a technique and finding a technique, and started working on finding the difference. While this essay really gets to the heart of some issues about how one can learn to put that into practice, the sentence that resonated for me is:

"Technique becomes more about putting the attacker in a place where he gives you the technique than about you taking it." It takes one beyond responding to the attack, and is something I think I can "chew over" on the mat for quite a while to come....
