Assuring yourself of a balanced decision
The objective is to neutralize the situation, not focus upon whether the attacker throws a right hand or a left hand; the main objective is to nullify the attacker.
Transition is the ability to put the other concepts into anything you do and as also use as a tool to assure yourself of a balanced decision.
We can give examples to transition in the time of an attack with these:
Fast “V” steps => transition to all distances rapidly.
Universal application principle => it doesn’t matter whether you are using a naked hand or any kind of weapon, same movements can be applied to different context.
Timing => moving at the correct time, not early or late.
Ideal line => to reach the target you should focus on the shortest path.
Going forward => to increase mental and physical speed, the path is being shortened.
