If that's what happened, that's great. If it isn't, I dont lie well, certainly not in a court of law. Yes, I have the backup of a canned response based on training and experience. However, I dont want to have to use it beyond the occasional incident report.
My point was that I just don't complicate things.

What sounds better on a police report.

He attacked me with a lazy right cross, I slipped the punch and clinched, from there I noticed he had a horrible base, so I hooked in a standing kimura grip and threw him with harai goshi making sure to land on him as hard as possible, breaking his arm.

or

It all happened so fast! This guy was just coming at me, so I grabbed him to keep him from hitting me and we struggled, in the process of defending myself from his attack we fell to the ground and his arm was broken. I was really scared!
