Thread was suggested by Dale, after we touched on the subject of "Misdirection". The original concept was brought up here. I stated that : What are some of the Kyojitsu techniques/concepts which you cats use to bluff/distract your Uke, in order for you to "get the drop" on your opponent ? My instructor places alot of emphasis on the "bluff" and refers to bluffing as "Void" techniques/principles, since they're unknown so to speak. I find it interesting to look at other arts and to adapt some of their ideas into my Taijutsu Randori. A typical distraction, which my instructor taught me was taken straight out of a Kung Fu style called Hung Gar. The bluff is actually pretty comical to watch, as you wave your hands around in a flying/swimming motion to distract your opponent, then your arms widen to really distract your opponet, then you strike upwards with a powerfull Sokugyaku to your Ukes arm (or other target). This is all done very fast, and it's over in seconds. It's very mesmerizing, and is somewhat loosely based around the "Crane" technique. Please feel free to add any ideas to make the topic broader and more diverse.
