How can I see what strike my opponent is going to strike?

I wonder how I can see what strike my opponent is going to strike.

Answer: It is a good question. Experience. The better your opponent is, you would not know what they are going to do.

But to start with, watch carefully in their eyes. Of course, this does not really work on the experienced people but if your opponent is inexperienced, you can see their eyes move.

And also pay attention to shinai movements as well. It will move to where it goes to. You must focus on these things at the same time. That is why we need to have enzan-no-metsuke.

You need to pay attention to body movements too. It is like paying attention to non-verbal cues when talking to people.

Hope this helps.
