suki – Opening

Suki in Japaenes martial arts refers to an opening or momentery laps in concentration. It is at this moment you must strike! Suki usually last only for a fraction of a moment. It is when the mind begins to drift. You must detect the suki and attack as the mind floats, or in other words, “Strike while the iron is hot.”

In Japan the say is; “Fill the void with technique.” or sente – to take the initiative.
