Pay no mind to any of this.
When i'm attacked, though it looks like they're punching at my head or kicking at my legs they are really aiming for my center. It's a pretty small target (figureatively speaking..just a little point under my gut), so all i have to do is move just a tad...it's out of the way...and i avoid the attack. Simple stuff. All the appendage waving is something to get distracted on. (Easier to brush aside that way)
