the truth to the answer about the attacks is, use whatever works at that moment. There's a post about a sensei who was waiting for a knife attacker on a train to get to him. He was contemplating what would be the right approach. To his surprise the attacker confronted an old man who had him sit next to him and calmed the attacker down. If you train hard enough you get into a "fighting mode". Much as when you do Jiwaza. You do what the moment takes you into... be it Kotegaeshi or Iriminage... follow?

That which does not kill us can only make us stronger
