Thanks Ted. No need for apologies, we all lead busy lives I'm sure. In fact, I should apologize to all of you in advance if I'm away and don't respond for some time. It's the nature of my job
Good advice on timing Ted. It helped me figure out (I think)what is meant by this, "If your opponent doesn't move, you don't move. If your opponent moves, you have already moved." So basically, your initial reaction to his/her movement doesn't commence until they have first moved. But once you begin your counter, you must move fast enough that you make physical contact before they do. In essence, you complete your initial movement before they do. Does this sound right to you?
