His 3 main principles:

#1: Avoid dangerous people and dangerous places.
#2: Do not defend your property.
#3: Respond immediately and escape.

"This is the core principle of self-defense: Do whatever you can to avoid a physical confrontation, but the moment avoidance fails, attack explosively for the purposes of escapenot to mete out justice, or to teach a bully a lesson, or to apprehend a criminal. Your goal is to get away with minimum trauma (to you), while harming your attacker in any way that seems necessary to ensure your escape."


Good stuff.
