In Dave Lowry's excellent book Autumn Lightning, he tells a story of his sensei coming in on him while DL was using the bathroom. His sensei then told him that to be ready for an attack while doing your business you should always sit and pull one leg completely out of your pants. That way if you need to move suddenly you won't get tripped up.

I always say to them, why do you want to hurt somebody?
I by no means want to hurt anybody, but I would rather be able to cause pain/injury and choose not to than be unable in the first place (check my signature).
