The beauty of number two is that it leads to action. This might be a little heady but bear with me. In physics, the definition of motion is a change in position of an object over time. Motion is mathematically described in terms of displacement, distance, velocity, acceleration, time, and speed. Motion of a body is observed by attaching a frame of reference to an observer and measuring the change in position of the body relative to that frame. That means the there in order for there to be motion there must be at the very least two objects. One moving and, according to our definition, the other observing. This is a very important relationship. It means that the movements we observe are mutually arising. They have a cause and effect nature and this means that the two objects are connected. In the game of tag, we all know that if i’m running to my left and the chase is approaching from my right that the best way to get space or separation is to cut to the right in such an angle that I avoid the tag. This is what is meant when I say that “The clue is hidden in the problem, and the answer is provoked by the question”. The best players in the world are comfortable in one on one situations because they recognize this simple principle. Only you know what you are going to do when in possession of the ball, and this leg up is the mental concept that one needs to be able to utilize in a myriad of different ways. In the game the question you are asked or the pressure you are faced with can come from a multitude of different directions therefore the goal of technique should be to have a wide enough repertoire of responses! Thats what training is for, to refine your response.
