I think he meant Committed Attack, that being a requirement to use Spinning Attack [All-out Attack is also an option, but that generally takes it up from problematic straight to suicidal].

I meant use Deceptive Attacks overall as part of the style.

I'm questioning Plane's saying "Dedicated Attack".

Isn't that just a Feint? Couldn't you just Rapid Strike every turn and use one of your "attacks" as a Feint?

That's one way to do it, certainly, but not the only way, as noted above.

That Ruses and Beats use a Feint maneuver does not actually make them feints.
Yes. They are.
Martial Arts. p. 73 (the actual description of the Feint Technique):
"Feint includes knowledge of Beats (pp. 100-101) and
Ruses (p. 101). Make a STbased roll to attempt a Beat or
to use ST to resist one, an IQbased roll to try a Ruse, or a
Per-based roll to use Per to resist a Ruse".

Good catch, I missed that. Yeah, I'd separate them out, they're all very different things.
