    1. so in a true SD incident, you will know the perp will attack you, you are alert and watching for the moment he attacks, and he will attack you FRONTALLY?

    2. in competition, the most common attack to lead with is the right/rear punch/ haymaker?

    Why even complicate it with the half second uke/tori relationship before going "live"? Spar, or don't.
