    BROKEN RHYTHM: Erratically timed movements that follow no set beat or pattern, but which can be deliberately used to deceive or interupt the action of an opponent. A simple analogy- the pre-meditated use of stuttering motion. This term is related to DECEPTIVE TIMEING, see also DELAYED MOVEMENT, RETARDED MOVEMENT, and STUTTERING MOTION.

    Obviously, this is an excellent tool in confusing your oppoent and keeping them from being able to accurately predict your next maneuver.

    This concept also works with ANATOMICAL POSITIONING. When using a strike in order to position your opponent in such a way as to expose the next desired target for the follow-up strike, you may have to 'wait' for them to get there before executing it. If your follow-up strike arrives to early, then the target may not be there! So, you have to alter the timing and rhythem of your movements.

    ...just a few thoughts on the matter.

    Oh come on peeps, I just mentioned a little about how it relates to anatomical positioning. There's plenty more to explore here! You could write an extended essay on broken rhythm. Come on.....
