A digression on the forums about using Sports skills for combat led me to pen the following:

It is primarily a defensive style in essence. Practitioners begin – always – with a Wait maneuver, and then lash out at the exact moment with crushing force. If caught off guard, parries are Aggressive, and Parry Missile Weapons is a primary skill. Very little thought is given to defense, and most attacks are All-Out or Committed as well as Telegraphic.
