I guess you guys are right , but i dont think of this stuff , or plan it , and it`s not Mushin
To me this is a bit of a slippery slope , It sniffs of over confidence , and IMHO if you can do such things you will , no need to go overboard .
Ive worked a few doors , limited , but have helped folks out , it`s common sense what you can and cant do ? , Isnt it ?
I guess the way i`m looking at it`s a bit off since I see your point , nothing wrong with a good slap .
I think it`s mostly a time equation wether or not you can subdue someone with minimal force , and your discussing interupts , but these are higher percentage techniques and you have to be confident before you employ .
My stalls , My favourite is a foot sweep , just to distract the mind , and this is from point fighting
, latch on and go from there , but i`ll do it in either scenario .
lots to think about .....
softer striking to me seems an escalation , youve either gone there or you havent , i dont consider a push or sweep a strike as they dont mentally register that way to me .
