IMO you move well but at the same time you look timid... like if you weren't able to project intent both offensively and defensively. Don't know how to explain better.
Good enough for the internet! Thank you, Demetrio! I appreciate it very much! I have a feeling it wouldn't make much of a difference for what you're describing, but one factor that affected how timidly I was moving was how tired I was. There were times I recall thinking, "oh, I stopped trying...reengage!" ...Still, I think I have an inkling of what you're describing, though, thank you! I'll try to think more on that.
