Here is an interesting link – https://ninetymilesfromtyranny.blogspot.com/2017/04/how-to-avoid-getting-sucker-punched.html.
I watched it, and got to thinking (always a dangerous thing, thinking) – one of the video lessons from AKTS was on the use of the turning movement in the warmup (I always knew the move as Tai Chi Turning). It comes up from a low position, striking through the target (with the palm heel or cupped palm). It takes into account the same points as the video describes – effects of stress (tunnel vision), use of hand position, and body position (shoulder alignment)comments? Not so much in the defense (which the video points out in the conclusion) – but on the use of a first strike.
