Haragei  I don't know the english translation for haragei.  But it is like your ability to "sense" danger or your "gut feeling".  Haragei is when you can feel when your opponent will strike, and sense their intent.  Its also when you suddenly feel like something is not right, or something bad is going to happen.  Or when you walk into a room and can just tell if someone is very upset just by walking in the room.  And not even necessarily upset but any intense emotion such as saddness, anger, or joy.
