Your priority if you have gone off track is to reorient yourself and maintain your balance.
If in a fight, you have begun to be destabilised, it would be useless to allow yourself to slowly fall over onto the ground and then lay on the ground crying in a heap.
A much more effective strategy would be to, as soon as you notice yourself becoming off centre, shift your weight and bring yourself back into balance to maintain your stance.
At times in life you will become a little unbalanced by the challenges of other people or circumstances.
The importance is the speed at which you recover.
Develop the ability to recover quickly in order to maintain your balance and develop a powerful stance.
If you have gone off track, get back on track now.
Simply correct yourself
