Avenues Of Approach
There are many different directions from which an
opponent may enter your defensive sphere. But there are
eight directions from which he may attack that would not only
permit him to enter but to off-balance you as well. These
eight directions are referred to as the eight
Avenues Of Approach.
Angles Of Evasion
The angles of evasion correspond with the avenues
of approach in that they are the same angles
in relation to your position. Just as an attack may come
from angles which could off-balance you, so you may
use the eight avenues of approach in a reverse manner. Thus
they become the angles of evasion.
