In other words, do we have the stopping power in the shots we connect with?
Well... I guess the first item of business when you want to do your job is to show up for work. And if you're there on the inside of their looping offense, well that's a great start.
What you do from there depends a lot on how you're trained. It could be the stopping power of shots. Or it could be disabling grappling moves - something only the Joey Pomfrets in our system spend a lot of time on. Or it could be the gouging and poking that exists in our traditional style that few of us train to use or have the mindset to execute.
But that of course is all theory. The person executing the plan is a big factor in it all. As you know...
