One guy, 2 knock outs… Pre-emptive striking can sometimes be your best defense in a fight.
While striking someone first is not ideal from a legal standpoint (and we’re not offering legal advice here), but if you believe you are in danger and have tried withdrawing and the attacker continues advancing and threatening it “could” be warranted to strike first.
As Sun Tzu wrote:
Those who arrive early at the place of conflict
will be in a position to take initiative.
Those who arrive late
must hasten into action troubled.
Thus, those are skilled in conflicts
will make the first move to
prevent others from taking initiative.
