Best software for visually diagramming a series of martial art strategies?

This is actually a very sophisticated requirement – one you’d normally want dedicated software to achieve. Knowing a bit about martial arts myself, I can see a whole lot of ramifications of the various scenarios you’ve described. Not least, how best to describe them so users can “hook in” to the bits most immediately relevant to what they’re trying to do. The combination of visual flows plus an underlying database for instant referencing is already complex – the option to fork into multiple possible responses, and then immediately fork again, well, that’s really heavyweight stuff. That’s because certain paths are going to converge with some paths, while other paths are going to diverge into their own specific areas. So you’ve got to take duplication/repetition into account as well.

I’m not at all convinced Flying Logic is powerful enough to do this – but it may be. Whether it also supports the appropriate visualisation I don’t know. I can’t immediately think of any software that could do what you’re describing, although I can think of various software components that could be combined to build a tool for this kind of visualisation.

Any programmers in the forum with insights into the underlying requirements?
