Response to About that punch to the solar plexus...
"you are dreaming if you think your attacker is going to let you realize you failed and then give you time to flow and change and keep going etc.."
What I get from Mike's reference to Kenpo's ability to adapt and keep going is more along the lines of the "running the table" analogy. Certainly, you want to train to reflexively cut to the kill shot, but - without anticipating failure - shouldn't you also give consideration to a nice leave, to stick with billiards thing? I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket, but rather train to chew up my opponent such that, if one move "fails" I won't have compromised my position and, ideally, I can continue without pause until I drop the guy.
