KID I used to play what I thought was the KID for white, normally developing like this: e4 Nf3 d3 g3 Bg2. Was I mistaken as to the name of this opening?

It is called the Kings indian attack (KIA) when useing that formation as white

KID is when black plays Nf6, g6, Bg7, 0-0, d6, e5, etc.

not necessaraly..... 1.e4 c5 is sicilian defence
1.c4 e5 is not called sicilian attack, if that is what you mean.

but there are reversed openings, such as alekhine's defence, reversed, by the move order, or close to it,
1.Nf3 d6
2.g3 e5
3.Bg2 e5

a defence, as i understand it, is a move not symmetrical to white's first move, or something like that.

what is C4 E5 called??
ordinary_man 29 ( +1 | -1 )
openings 1.c4 e5
is known as both
the Reversed Sicilian(obvious why)
or King's English.(1.c4-english opening 1...e5 king's pawn opening-hence king's english)

And a defense is any black opening which answers to white's opening attack...
not necessarily an asymmetrical one either.

Tulkos was right on the money.
