Yeah, you're going to ask why I put this up.
The few people advanced enough to be working on such things will see the three or four concepts in here that are pretty darned interesting, and others will at least learn a few things about operational methods of pickpockets. It's a bit hard to explain all the little bits though, since it's long and rambly, but it drops a lot of things about attention, gaze, and movement. I thought it was interesting, gave some new ideas on ways to hide movements or close distance.

Interesting read!

I love this point:
“Attention is like water. It flows. It’s liquid. You create channels to divert it, and you hope that it flows the right way.”

Its akin to Musashi and Sun Tzu. Work in fighting and in business.

This was a very interesting read. So much to learning human behavior.
