Thanks for your response. I greatly disagree. Ironically, I think your proverb proves my point. The rabbit runs because it does not have the physical attributes or the skill set to stand and drive the fox off. If caught, the rabbit will die. Is this not true for all foxes and all rabbits?
That's my point and why I believe the style matters. The rabbit must run, it is the only skill set it has (life on the line, bunnies at home, it doesn't matter).
If you still disagree, and I suspect that's the case, then I suppose it best we agree to disagree. I don't want this thread to become yet another "sport v combat" diatribe.
Bunnies aren't trained in martial arts.
(Or any fighting style.) That is why it didn't have the necessary skills to fight the fox.
