The Best Defense is a Good Offense……
Lets see where this goes. Article by Don Robison Suarez International Tier 1 Staff Instructor.
It’s a bit cliché’ but often said that the best defense is a good offense. What does that mean? To me; that means always be on the offensive. All over the internet we hear people expounding the idea of the “defensive mindset”; I say hogwash. A defensive mindset is the mindset of a person who doesn’t plan or take measures to better ensure their safety or the safety of their loved ones; they sit around waiting for something to happen so they can defend themselves against it. A person with an offensive mindset is always thinking, they are always planning ahead and doing things to mitigate the risk of being attacked.
What kind of a person are you?

I see where the author is coming from but what he calls offense is something that I have always done. However I have always considered it as establishing a defense.
What kind of a person are you? The defensive mindset person pulls into a gas station hops out of their car and fills up with gas. The offensive mindset person pulls into a gas station takes a look around and assess their surroundings, looking for possible problem people, areas, and avenues of approach and formulates a plan of action for the what if scenarios

Yup, I'm for "pre-emptive strike(s)" if I sense something is coming. In other words, even if BG hasn't/doesn't throw a punch, swing his stick, pull his knife/gun, etc., I would much rather take aggressive, physical measures first, up to and including getting out of Dodge, before he has a chance to hit me.
This is similar/applicable to one of the (advanced) elements of martial arts, whereby, you anticipate/sense your opponent's attack. Because you "struck" first, it may appear that you are being the "aggressor" when, in fact, you are the defender.

What he calls offense I call situational awareness. Offense would be some one looking to make the first strike against another person. Otherwise you are "defending" yourself against another person's choice to harm you.

I never let my tank get below a quarter of a tank.
An eigth of a tank is too low.
I've always said that if you have to get defensive, you have already failed at something.
