“What is an archer without a target?”

Tao meditation

For our purposes, employing tactics is to determine which weapons you will select from
your arsenal and use in order to efficiently succeed in your life endeavour or judo match.
Tactics are the methods of selecting and deploying parts of your entire arsenal on a given
target. Your tactics should not be foreign to your strategies; they reflect what you think is
the best use of your skills. They reflect your personality as they are a subset of it. From
your repertoire, the selected weapon or tool should provide you with optimal response to
your immediate needs and expectations. In his Art of War, Tzu Sun reported that: “The
good fighters of old first put themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then, waited
for the right opportunity of defeating the enemy.”3

Tactics are skills normally used in close quarters, at selected times and in support to each
other. When you make use of tactics, it is understood to mean that you have selected your
weapons, deployed your resources over a selected terrain or space, and that you intend to
use them in harmony and in support of each others. Tactics should enable you to gain and
maintain the offensive, stay focussed on your objective, use the weaknesses of the
opponent and show your determination and resolve. They will enable you to quickly
change direction and alter your momentum as you exploit the weaknesses found in your
selected target. Tactics will permit to you better observe at close range, pay more
attention to changing field conditions and absorb more details. By their proper use, you
will develop greater understanding of their impact and vulnerability; you will be more
vigilant and disciplined.
