"Things to revert"

I took a semester or two of judo at a local college once, while failing an introductory computer programming course taken at the same time. Other forms of defense may be more effective overall, but there were stories to hear such as the girl who had a knife held to her throat while walking with a friend at a university, and used that arm to throw her attacker to the ground. I was fascinated by the technique of the basic foot sweep while walking, where one becomes airborne before noticing that the foot is not firmly placed on the ground.

And yes, as mentioned the second president and current prime minister of the Russian Federation is a black belt.

. . . I was trying to look this up, but it isn't as clear as I wanted. I'm not sure if my understanding of this was correct so I will just quote
To Hit the Enemy "In One Timing"
"In One Timing" means, when you have closed with the enemy, to hit him as quickly and directly as possible, without moving your body or settling your spirit, while you see that he is still undecided. The timing of hitting before the enemy decides to withdraw, break or hit, is this "In One Timing".

You must train to achieve this timing, to be able to hit in the timing of an instant.

The "Abdomen Timing of Two"
When you attack and the enemy quickly retreats, as you see him tense you must feint a cut. Then, as he relaxes, follow up and hit him. This is the "Abdomen Timing of Two".

It is very difficult to attain this merely by reading this book, but you will soon understand with a little instruction.

No Design, No Conception
In this method, when the enemy attacks and you decide to attack, hit with your body, and hit with your spirit, and hit from the Void with your hands, accelerating strongly. This is the "No Design, No Conception" cut.

This is the most important method of hitting. It is often used. You must train hard to understand it.

Don't be a newb. Anyway. According to Wikipedia, occupatio is "the rhetorical figure of bringing up and responding to a counterpoint before the opponent has the chance to make it." According to the premier experts on all Internets-related matters, occupatio is "a rhetoric technique in a debate or trial whereby the speaker would predict his opponent's behavior/argument before they'd made it. This prevented their opponent from pursuing that line of action. If they do pursue that line of action, then they seem like the mindless puppets of the original speaker."

(Examples omitted)

The difference is the assumption of audience. The expectation is that the action will not be taken. However, for this exact reason the action may be taken anyway. By not mentioning the action, it may be possible to avoid it by avoiding the expectation that the action will not be taken.
