以逸待勞/Yi Yi Dai Lao – Wait at Ease for an Exhausted Enemy

原文:困敵之勢,不以戰;損剛益柔。

Original Text: To impair the enemy’s momentum don’t use battle; decrease hardness & increase softness. 

解析:迫使敵人處於困難的境地,不一定採取直接進攻的手段,可以根據剛柔互相轉化的原理,實行積極防禦,逐漸消耗、疲憊敵人,使之由強變弱,我方則由被動變主動。

Analysis: It isn’t necessary to directly attack the enemy in order to force him into difficult circumstances, it’s possible, using the principle of the mutual transformation of Hard & Soft, to implement a vigorous defense & gradually consume the exhausted enemy, causing his strength to transform into weakness, while our passivity transforms into action.
