Indirect Action Strategies – Part 1
In this part, I will discuss about indirect action strategies. In this strategy, the main point is to win combat with a detour. Even with a detour, it’s not mean that we are coward. But rather to attack the opponent’s weak points. When your opponent in a strong condition (maximum), we can win if the fighting capability owned (skill, experience, etc) is better than enemy had, and risks faced is won with a lot of casualties or defeat. But at the opponent’s weakened condition, we can win only by issuing a little energy without causing too many casualties.
In this post, I’ll explain a little about indirect action strategy. In this indirect action strategy, we are encouraged to think creatively in developing a strategy to win the battle. Why? Because we are invited to explore the opposite situation from what they have and don’t have. For example, when the enemy attacked at point A, then automatically security at point B, C, D and the other weaker. It would be better if we could solve the enemy forces spread to other points. When the enemy forces spread, then automatically power at point A weakens and we are able to subvert the enemy at point A.
Then, does this indirect action strategy is used only when the enemy attacked? The answer will readers find in the next post. So, remain with the author to discuss about 36’s strategies further.
