Strengths and Weaknesses

The other day I was watching a television program about American fighter pilots. One of them said a very interesting thing. He said that the basic strategy was to attack the enemy's weaknesses using your strengths.

This also accurately describes the strategy used in Karate. When attacked, we should attack (counterattack) the opponent's weaknesses using our strengths. In the process, we should defend our our weaknesses.

We should thus always be aware of the attacker's strengths and weaknesses as well as our own.
