Hick's Law is a human-computer interaction model that describes the time it takes for a user to make a decision as a function of the possible choices he or she has. This is also an applicable law in the martial arts!
Is it better to have an large arsenal of hundreds of techniques to suit any situation, or a more refined group of principles, concepts and theories (PCTs) which may be generally applied and adapted to suit any situation.
Hick's law would suggest that the latter is better...what do you think?

One would be more familiar with PCTs over the arsenal,and movement adapted could be unpredictable for the opponent.
If one were to train through all of their techneques regularly,then it would depend on the lessers knowlege of techneques.
It all depends on whos mind and body is better trained.
Moot point,on my behalf.

You shouldn't dismiss things so easily.
It's not a moot point as others might have different perspectives and opinions on the subject.
Perhaps you have misunderstood.

I understand that.
I was just speaking my opinion on my behalf.I simply think that the topic depends much upon the training of the users of said techneques.This is my opinon with the information given.
Nothing has been dismissed.
Trust me, I want to know what the others have to say as well.

i think he's trying to say do you.. the one questioned.. believe
that a serious of moves.. is more important than a few
moves backed by principles, conclusions, and theories..

and since the hick's law computer's job is to tell what can be done or should be done.. do you agree with the hick law?

to me yes/ and know..
because if situation is different.. one attacker can be shorter but quicker with steel extremeties, others can have great balance, some heavy as a rock, or all together..
you may learn many moves but they all have the similarites of the basic moves.
if you have trained moves to be second nature, and have had experience, you know what you do, sometimes without noticing it
even if you thought of doing something you had in mind.

but others may disagree or saying. PCT's (principles yaddeyadda lol) no disrepect will answer everything,, which can.. but to me
must be proven..the hick's law is predictabl.. people are and aren't predictable..
