A lesson for sparring

Sensei Post in Training notes

In baiting a mousetrap with cheese, always leave room for the mouse.
This is especially true when sparring. When we spar often we leave an false opening to draw our opponent in but often we are to eager and bait the trap with to much “cheese”. Often when this happens we loose sight of everything else feeling that our trap is perfect. Unfortunately to often this is not the case and our efforts fail. In our zeal we sometimes feel we have thought of every possibility only to find out we were wrong. A good tool to help thwart this problem is to play chess, yes chess! After all sparring is really a very fast game of chess.
