The escaping arts are probably the highest art simply because it relies on everything that has been said previously. When someone is striking you, again they choose to take up your ground. You re-position and you give the ground in order to take new ground. If you move twice you have escaped.
This is the same even if someone has grabbed you and you are dealing with it just by moving your body twice. In moving the body twice and moving it rapidly but not overtly you have created subtle differences in their own body posturing and positioning and you may throw them off. At the same time you might re-position your body to where you can counteract and throw them or you can choose to exist with them and make their movement null and void.
