I put this here, but whether it be a ring situation, an SD one, sparring, etc. Do you prefer trapping? Such as moving to the outside of the punch. Staying on the inside and using a more circle type of block and counter, perhaps using a strike to the bicep, an elbow strike or something else? Boxing type of defense with hands up and head movement? I'm just getting an idea what people like the most and why. I think a lot about how I would avoid shots more so than how I would deliver them. Better defense it seems might deter an attacker more and maybe or hopefully, make them more inclined to give up. This is simply a guess. I know like most anything, there is no hard and fast rule really, and all of the above, plus more, would be better. Only a "if you could only pick one, which would you choose" type of thing.
