I’m in a martial art, and I’m looking for software that would help me diagram my strategies in different sparring situations. I want this to be a visual diagram. I’m trying to figure out whether TB would be able to do this.
It should allow me to show, say:
I) if I’m in stance X and my opponent is stance Y
A) I can do this
a) he can react with A
to which I can do blah
or something else
b) or he can react with B
to which I can do something
or something else
B) or I can do this
C) or I can do this
II) whereas if I’m in stance Y and he’s also in Y
III) or if I’m in stance Y and he’s in X
But I want to be able to have “situations” which can be referred to in multiple places in the diagram… (e.g. he has my sleeve and lapel, and I have his), since many situations would be reachable via multiple roads. Those shouldn’t need to be duplicated.
Similarly, techniques would be referenced in many different parts of the diagram, but they should be singular and not duplicated – so that if I click on them, I can also find linked info on them as techniques. I’d also like to be able to easily see all the roads by which one could come to use that technique.
And it would also be useful to have searchable attributes automatically added: e.g. show all decision nodes that are “children” of a certain grip position… even if those children are in radically different branches of the map.
And finally it would be great if I could also in this visual scheme easily link to other relevant info (e.g. drop in a video clip of a technique).
I want to be able to start creating the drawing from anywhere (in other words, start inputting a random situation in) and then insert it into the flow anywhere I like, or into multiple places.
Would TB be able to do this well? If not, any suggestions for software that might be able to?
