The point was in support of my argument on how low and high DX people
actually win fights, and the outcome of what happens when high meets low.

A technique is not really a battle 'tricks'. Such tricks don't work in the
long run. The specific technique I used was not a trick, just a particular
basic technique. Done at a high level of skill, but something that
everyone learns. No trickery involved.

I used that particular technique over and over and over again specifically
to see if any of the lower rank guys would notice, figure out what I was
doing, and counter it knowing what I would do. If they had done so, I'd
have known that they were moving out of the lower DX ranks where simply
executing a technique correctly is likely to win, and up to the level
where seeing what's happening and manipulating that wins.

I was looking so that I'd know what I could teach to each of them
according to how well they did against me.

And my point is that it doesn't slow down.
