Handling adverse outcomes in combat.
Anyone who has taken part in any form of competitive practice, or been involved in any sort of planning scenario, knows a simple truth.
“The first casualty in combat is the plan”
This phrase has taken many forms, depending on the scenario, however, it holds as an axiom that is often brought out when plans fail as they are implemented. Engaging in combat is one such scenario. Whether in training or competition, you will find yourself against someone who is not only trying to put their plan into play, but also trying to counter your methods, often at the same time and within the same action if they can manage it.
