    That's the flip-side to the one I did in the MABS.
    Background- very long ago, when I bothered with tournaments, I competed in an all-styles semi-contact tournament. Tore through a couple of other Shotokan guys (leg-sweep reverse punch kiai!) I was lucky enough to get in the prelims, then had to fight a Lau Gar guy.
    He kept doing this mystical thing that meant I couldn't hit him. He'd vaporise or something, and then appear next to me and hit me with a ridge-hand or hook punch.

    I think they called it a "sidestep".

    It was about then I realised that perhaps the "total" system I was training in wasn't as total as I thought.

    You are only a novice. To TRULY learn to dislike me takes years of hate-Budo.

    And only then will you discover novice-mind again.

    Oh, I can't be arsed to put the effort in if it takes years.

    Is there an advanced accelerated learning programme I can pay for?

    Or, shall I just go ahead and like you again?

    I'm capricious!

    12 steps? Still sounds like a lot of hard work.
    I think I'm just gonna go back to admiring you from afar, if that's ok.
