Stick, Adhere, Connect, and Follow

Sticking means lifting and raising high; adhering means clinging and attachment; connecting means giving up yourself and not separating from the opponent; and following means that I respond to my opponent's movements. It is impossible to understand conscious movement without being clear about sticking, adhering, connecting and following, but this skill is very subtle.
