How about using Geoff Thompson's system called "The Fence" to hide the normal on-guard posture ? Basically the hands are at the same height but with the palms facing the opponent, done when you are saying words like "calm down mate" it looks like a completely normal reaction to a situation but still offers the protection of the normal guard. Plus It doesn't look as silly and keeps the knowledge of your MA advantage from the attacker.
