Avoiding hits is a basic survival skill in combat. It requires fit body and wits to know how to fool your opponent to hit just where you want him to hit and not actually be there when the blow comes. While this is a conscious act to try to avoid hits one can be even more adept at this if he is doing it instinctively so that he doesn't even have to think about it before it has already happened. Those who are adept at this swerving motion are able to avoid and lessen blows coming at him by abruptly turning aside from a straight line or course without making any gesture that would give it away to the assailant before its too late.
