Anticipation and Gung Fu

Quick Notes On Anticipation from Non-Classical Gung Fu

  • Reaction lag = you will get hit if you wait for your opponent to move first.
  • Instead of trying to react, work on skills of ANTICIPATION (reading opponents cues) and launch an attack before he does.
  • anticipate the STIMULUS (wait for his initial attack) and you’ll end up hurt.
  • Avoid over committing – if you move into a closer range than necessary to hit him, you then risk a counter. This makes sense when you look at the primary weapons that Jesse teaches – finger jab to eyes and Big Punch.
  • anticipate the EVENT (the fight), and; preempt the strike.
