Opponents respect pain, so block hard.
Hands are your most dangerous weapon, so use them.
Use lead hand as a measure for distance.
Be aware of your surroundings and use them, such as edges of the fighting ring, walls, pillars, bright sun, etc.
Novices may not follow your lead, as would a more experienced opponent.
To win, it is not how much you may hurt the opponent, but how much pain you can endure to stop him or her.
Always look at the intended target, except when using a feint.
Maintain balance throughout execution of techniques.
Use feints infrequently; only us them when you have an intention to attack.
