What if the would be attacker is reaching in to his jacket or pocket to pull out a cigarette box or a Mobile phone?

If someone is giving me some verbal insults and the opponent reaches one of his hands in to his pocket then that is the moment to go for a knockout!

Had a person that wanted a fight with me, I simply said " well you had better take off your nice jacket and we can get to it"

As soon as his jacket was halfway off, trapping himself, I pounced on him like a Tiger...
Picking the right moment to pounce is knowing how to win in an instance.

I had a family acquaintance tell a story about him getting into it with an older fella at a bar one time. As the gentleman was preparing to get up to "go outside," he said, "Here, hold my beer." The spry young chap held the beer, and then, since he had a hold of two beers, found himself flat on his back a short instant later.

The older fella stood over him and said, "I'm too damned old to go outside."

Practicing techniques and stances, knowing how to move and the rest of it is fine, but training for the 4th dimension "timing" is far more effective than most people realize, so as my reflexes aren't what they were, knowing when and how to strike has become more acute, accurate and beneficial.
