The attacker can change direction at any time, the challenge for the defender is to react and change direction themselves as quickly as possible.
Defenders should always try to be ready for the next change of direction. Over committing in one direction can make it easy for the attacker to change direction without the defender able to react.
Use this drill to practice:
Mark out two squares – the first, roughly 10m a side; the second, roughly 5m a side.
The attacker works in the larger square with the defender in the smaller square.
