    Do you know what a loaded question is?

    So if I understand you, if you cannot successfully defend against a sucker punch, your art is no good? What you describe is at 2:18 is essentially that. But do you think if one trains oneself to always be alert to their surroundings they might have a better chance to defend? And do you consider that a person might train themselves to be better at knife attack than an untrained person who isn't paying attention to their surroundings being able to defend? If you watch the video, I submit there was time to react if the victim was trained to do so.

    BTW, just so I can better evaluate your point of view, what is your art and what is your rank in it? You may have mentioned it before and I missed it, but please tell me.
