Shintaro new, in any fight with an equally armed and competent opponent, there were 3 possible outcomes, you could say, The Holey Trinity. He dies, you die or you both die. If he did not choose to fight it was not because of fear or compassion, for his enemy, merely because The Casino of Life did not give him at least, a 50/50 probability of winning. If you have a longer affective range, and are more competent that than your enemy, then you can remove 2 of those possible outcomes, and in that case, take the shot.
So i have a question for the entire community When faced with a superior foe in every way do you wait for the first strike and pray you survive and are still able to be combat affecive so you maintain the moral high ground Or Do you hit hard hit fast and hit first try for surprise and violence of action Ive been mulling this over for years now I haven't been able to find an answer or rather to many answers from history to scripture to training manuals Were do you stand in the right what is just and good?
