An effective self-defense strategy is to:
- Guard against entropy by maintaining the initiative, growing continuously, and constantly adapting. Greatest danger is to get captured in your own thought processes rather than remaining sensitive to the changing environment and your opponent.
- Get inside the opponent’s OODA loop; make your cycle faster or vary your tempos and rhythms so your opponent cannot keep up with you. Remain fluid, protect what you value most, and attack what opponent values most. The real target is your opponent’s perception; to win, get into opponent’s mind.
- Work on three levels: moral, mental and physical. Do not allow yourself to become mentally confused or weaken your moral standards. Integrity and moral conviction are keys to avoiding this.
- Read the environment correctly. Find and use mismatches or disconnects.
- Adapt to the changing situation. Certainty is impossible; all actions will be based in incomplete, inaccurate, or even contradictory information.
