Re: Calibration problems... a (possibly) simple solution...

Poster: jsussman@cpcug.org (Jeffrey Sussman)

Greetings from Richard Fitzgilbert,

Calibration before combat doesn't do as much as we'd like.  Acknowledgement
is a combat skill.  Standing around watching your opponent whack, or poke,
you is a very different context from combat.  Acknowledgement skills are
learned and refined in sparring and in combat.  A lack in this skill or a
miscalibration of acknowledgemet levels, acquired over years (at least
months) can not be remedied completely in a 20 second ritual exchange of
uncontested blows.  

If you bring good combat skills to the field they will stand you in good
stead.  A lack in any of these skills can not be remedied quickly.
