Mini-Quiz: Using "The Art of War" in Athletic Competitions

by Ron Kurtus (18 December 2005)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. When is victory in an athletic contest similar to that in war?

When you kill the opponent

It never is, because you don't use guns in athletic contests

When the opponent gives up and surrenders to defeat

2. What does Sun Tzu mean by using variation in tactics?

You need to vary your tactics in a game to make the most of your skills

You must vary your tactics every 10 minutes for the best effect

Sun Tzu makes no mention of variation in tactics

3. How can you gain knowledge of your opponent's weaknesses?

By asking him

By watching him play others

By assuming he has the same weaknesses as you have

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Winning Competitions. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Always do your best
