Attack the strength

“Find out the weakness of your opponents and attack.”

This is something we grew up hearing often.

Maybe knowing the weakness can make it easier to intrude into your enemies territory.

Now just reverse the views,

Attack the strength …

I couldn’t resist sharing this message from Madhavan’s “boxing-film” ‘Saala Khadoos’.

Once the strengths are suppressed no chances for your Opponent  to rise again as a Phoenix bird. Seems much better strategy compared to the other one.. what do you say?

    At times attacking your strengths is good for the opponent as it distracts you.. however be on guard.. you never know how hard the next blow could be..

    Haven’t seen the movie but this seems like an interesting approach. At times it pays to challenge the old practices.

    Nice one, Akhila and yes when the time comes instead of sitting like a weak duckling one has to get immense strength and fight the opponent.

    when you attack the strength you neutralize it. The opponent stands exposed.

      Then its easier to win over them, being exposed without any strength

          Yes exactly ,he misused mother’s love on him,took it as her weakness,I think its easy to win over enemies by finding out thr weakness as they r already weak in that.

    Hmm thought provoking,I would say weakness,bec u don’t need much time to work on it.cheating is a strategy you should never use to enemies im against it.watever it is face to face.

    An interesting approach… but does make me wonder how do we apply it in our real life? Do we really have such enemies in the first place?

    Very potent food for thought here, Akhila!

    Exactly one should focus on the strength and prepare against it.

    I am more for relying on your own strengths rather than focussing on your enemies’ strengths and/or weaknesses. Then again, people always tell me I am too nice to get into any battle, which is true. I try to go by live and let live, if that doesn’t work, stay true to yourself and don’t let them get you down.

    Knowing someone’s weakness definitely let you prepare well.Knowing someone’s strength let you defeat them well.
