Very nicely done.
It might be simpler to look at it from the point of view of facing a gun. If you are in such a situation (far more likely than facing a sword), would you be thinking how to rapidly move forward and disarm him, or would you be thinking of what to say to talk him out of it? Which one is more sensible, I wonder?
