Mizoguchi Ha Itto Ryu - Similar principles with Shaolin Staff's "Evade-and-Deceive"
In most styles' practice, Japanese or not, the winner is usually the Defender. Attacker makes an attack, so that the Defender can practice the appropriate counter-measures and wins.
But for Mizoguchi Ha Itto Ryu, it's different. The winner is the Attacker, who makes an attack to elicit a response from the Defender first, so that he can subsequently make his genuine killing move. This seems to follow the principles of the Shaolin Staff's "Evade-and-Deceive", as well as the concept of "Old Energy, New Energy."
