A counterattack is an attack commenced during or just after an opponent's attack. The best time to attack is when your opponent is attacking. While attacking, your opponent is concentrating on the attack not on defense. Attacking opponents usually expose vital targets to a counterattack. Effective countering requires careful observance of the opponent for any hints of an attack and then using your speed, timing, and experience to avoid the attack and execute your own attack.
Which technique or combinations of techniques you use for a counterattack will depend upon the initiating attack used by the opponent, your speed, the relative body sizes of you and your opponent, your fear of being hit, and your degree of confidence.
