It’s better to avoid than run, better to run than de-escalate, better to de-escalate than fight, better to fight than die.
Sgt Rory Miller
There is a saying that all martial artist should be familiar with which is: It is better to be judged by 12 than carried by six. Whenever physical violence commences the likely hood of one of these two options is likely to ensue. Either we are put on trial for physically hurting someone or we are killed in the conflict. This quote from Sgt Miller is another perspective on this truth.
