Well, i'm going to reference a movie. Pulp Fiction. If you recall the part where Ringo and "hunny-bun" are robbing the restaurant? Joules reacted REALLY calmly. That is what I recommend. Stay cool. You know your training. You've done it a million times (hopefully). Just do what you know. I don't recommend doing anything if you're not 100% confident ...

Although there are many answers, it doesn't seem like your question has been adequately addressed. You list two requirements: kind to my joints (etc.) practical outside the ring (by this I assume you mean you need to defend yourself) I'm going to advocate a two part strategy. Tai Chi training. Gun training. I don't think there is any doubt that Tai ...
