If you deliver only a single attack, be absolutely sure you are going to hit the opponent with it, otherwise, do not throw it and waste energy. If you deliver a technique but miss the target, be sure to sidestep out of range immediately or follow-up with two or three more attacks. Do not stand there waiting to be hit. This establishes your superiority and causes the ring officials to notice you. An effective attack would start with a convincing fake, followed by a calculated barrage of attacks. Attempt to back up your opponent until he or she is off balance, and then deliver the crucial blow. Or, you can deliver a two-technique assault calculated to draw a specific counterattack, which you may then capitalize upon with a third technique. If you score with a specific technique, keep using it until the opponent finds a way to defend against it. Many opponents are unable to adjust and correct what they are doing wrong in the short time it takes to finish a round, or even a match. If it works, do not fix it. However, if the opponent has found a way to defend against it, switch to a different technique. Do not stay with a losing technique, even if it is your favorite one.
