Response to Category Completion

The way I understand it, if you can't make any single technique work in any variable, you have not mastered it.

any single technique with it's opposites and reverses works inside, outside, up and down

as well, a good teacher showed me reversing mace is all you need. You realize the system is built around this one idea, it's opposites and reverses.

category completion is good, but one thousand variables for a single attack can not be processed in the moment of crisis. Better learn one or two really well and all it's ins and outs. Start with delayed sword. You will find it to be nothing more than an opposite to reversing mace on the inside of the arm. which makes it reversing mace... No? try it. circle your arm down instead of up. what have you found? An opposite? Sword of Destruction? Reverse your motion, you'll get the same results.

we work in figure 8's. We work in circles. a figure 8 is just a circle with an opposite rotation in action. I wonder why the universal pattern is a circle? Could have been a square, or a diamond. But it's not. The universal patterns are contained in the circle for a reason. And if you work in circles, you work in the realm of reversing mace and it's opposites and reverses, no matter the rotation. Better put, you work in the realm of the circle, it's opposites and reverses, and applications such as double factors and it's many benefits, etc...

I'd rely more on the patterns of motion, than how many techniques I can pick out for one attack. The goal is to simplify to be effective.
