    Default Feints

    thanks

    Lack of food and water will do it.

    Or hearing something emotionally shocking, while wearing a very tight dress.

    Be sure to have a couch nearby.


    If you mean the sparring kind, then I don't really know. lol

    I like that. My instructor always says be prepared to score with the feint.

    It's about getting into your opponents head and proper use of body language. First, you have to be able to read their body language. Then, you have to be able to "fool" them with yours. The basic idea is to distract them by leading them to believe you're doing one thing when you're actually setting them up for something else.

    A simple approach is to "high-low" them. For instance: Lead with a low line attack, or at least begin the motions of one and then actually go with a high line attack instead. To be more specific, from a right neutral bow begin the execution of a low line front round kick. As thier attention is diverted to the lower quadrant, convert the "kick" into a "step" and lead in with a right jab to their head.

    Hope that helps!

    Okay for sparring, silly for a scenario in which you are attacking to protect your peace. Does the USMC feint?

    When you are facing a dangerous opponent of which you know little if anything it is important to investigate his reach, timing, reflexes, etc, etc. You are foolish to over commit and get torn up for your mistake.
    I'm sorry you misunderstood. I wasn't preaching bravado, but trying to accentuate the difference between carefully calculated one on one duels vs. all hell breaking loose and you are defending your life against raining violence. No harm no foul.
