Attitudes are for situations in which you are not to be moved. That is, for garrisoning castles, battle array, and so on, showing the spirit of not being moved even by a strong assault. In the Way of dueling, however, you must always be intent upon taking the lead and attacking. Attitude is the spirit of awaiting an attack. You must appreciate this. In duels of strategy you must move the opponent's attitude. Attack where his spirit is lax, throws him into confusion, irritate and terrify him. Take advantage of the enemy's rhythm when he is unsettled and you can win.

Really skilful people never get out of time, and are always deliberate, and never appear busy. From this example, the principle can be seen. What is known, as speed is especially bad in the Way of strategy.
