Your two jobs

Regardless of what kind of combat you’re in, you always have two jobs

  1. defend yourself
  2. position yourself to strike
    • and strike

Job 1 is easy. Wild swings can easily knock aside opponent’s attacks but they leave you poorly able to deliver a strike of your own (or defend yourself from your opponent’s second strike). That is, Job 2 may not be easily done.

In your practice always be sure that you’re keeping both of your jobs in mind.
