My wife sent me this link, and I think it's really well said. Bold emphasis is mine.
The primary goal of self-defense is to avoid becoming the victim of violence...
...This is the core principle of self-defense: Do whatever you can to avoid a physical confrontation, but the moment avoidance fails, attack explosively for the purposes of escape—not to mete out justice, or to teach a bully a lesson, or to apprehend a criminal. Your goal is to get away with minimum trauma (to you), while harming your attacker in any way that seems necessary to ensure your escape.

Sarah: just a thought
Joel: a thought?
a single thought?
Sarah: I sprayed the floor and mattress with deodorizor
Joel: one that can change the world.
a thought, who could think?
could be so powerful
Sarah: maybe I could bring the futon frame into the bedroom and get it off the floor that way
Joel: contained in one bunch of electrical impulses…
a simple, singular thought.
