Survival and Escape 

are the only goals we have!

  We are not:

       Police = Control and Arrest

       Military = Kill or Hurt Badly

       Contestant = Win Fight


Sometimes you can just leave

Other times, you have to be much more aggressive

 If you can, just leave!  Do not try out your skills.

If you cannot leave, then do whatever it takes to survive.
