Where you need to be concerned with immediate attack
Taking the initiative
Sen sen no sen- the ability to suppress an attack
Sen no sen- the ability to take the initiative early by attacking the moment opponents mind decides to attack, as he is distracted by sending orders to the body.
Go no sen- take the initiative later, after the attack.
THE MENTAL OR PHYSICAL MOMENT
No matter when you decide to attack, your attack will not be effective unless you take advantage of openings caused by your opponent’s weaknesses and mistakes. Both mental and physical mistakes cause openings.
