I like the phrase "Don't get hit".
It might at first seem to be a purely defensive position, but really ecompasses a whole spectrum of tactics.
"Don't get hit" can obviously mean -
Don't be there in the first place,
OTOH it can also mean -"They are not hitting" .... because they are -
Busy defending themselves,
Busy regaining their balance, or
Have lost the will to continue psychologically, or physically.
