Another point about Constant Attack

In January, I talked about the importance of constant attack, and how the timing of your attack in concert with one by your opponent can tip things in your favor.

However, I recently realized another element of why it is important to constantly attack - because it puts your opponent on the defensive. I love to counter - sometimes I will sit and wait for my opponent to try something before I counterattack. I am seeing more and more why this is a bad idea. The minute my opponent throws me on the defensive he is at an advantage.

Why? Because even if I am waiting to counter, I am still thinking defensively, and If am in 'defense' mode, it is hard to spot the opportunities for attack.

I think I will need to be more aggressive. The worse that can happen is that I get thrown :)
