    I don't know, I'm with Dan. If my opponent ends up on the ground quivering with a broken jaw or two, I'm gonna have to call it good motion.

    But, generally, I am more concerned with effect than motion. After all form follows function.

    Al Tracy was asked in a seminar, "How important are stances in your techniques?" His answer..."Stances are only important when they're wrong." There's a lot of answer in there.
