    The first thing that comes to mind is "anatomical positioning." The way Kenpo teaches to set up your next move with the previous move is brilliant. It's the same strategy that is used in chess; staying several moves ahead of your opponent.

    Cancel heith, width, and depth, with a posture or balance strategy.
    Control and dominate his centerline. Dimensional control is a natural extension, and our primary method of accomplishing this.

    Occupy his space, destroy his base, take his will.

    Three Phases of Technique
    1.Deal with the attack
    2.Alter or control at least two dimensions
    3.Take advantage of the change.

    Phase 'em with the first strike and hit them as many times as possible before their body hits the ground (in some cases while they're still on the ground)

    nah just kidding

    I'd definitely have to agree with the posts so far. Setting up your opponents for future strikes and controlling their dimensions are great aspects of oure strategies. I also would like to add balance and continuity which makes blending, grafting, extending, even withdrawing almost seamless. Another notable tactic that I would like to mention is our brilliant system of checking.

    At essence the strategy is to solidify your base (A mobile or static base depending on the situation) while disrupting your opponents base. There are many different tactics to achieve this.
