My instructor, Master Michael Deese, is a master of using subtle movements and expressions to sucker opponents into reacting to the movements in ways that will expose themselves to attacks. He is impossible to "read." Most opponents are not even aware of the movements and that they are reacting to them. I tell students that, when they spar with him, they should keep their guard up and not try to block. If they block an anticipated attack, it will always be the wrong block and they will get hit by the real attack 100% of the time. If they keep their guard up to protect vital areas, then they will at least have a chance of protecting those areas, although they may get hit elsewhere.
