Match On Action

Match on action is an editing technique, it is also known as “cutting on action”. It is used to cut from one shot to another view that matches the first shot’s action. 

Examples: a man opening the door and a close up of his hand on the door handle, a woman picking up a gun and a close up of her finger on the trigger etc etc.

Here is a simplified version of the match on action rule:
