Nicely said Ed, I agree with the distinction between an ego-based fight and one where someone is out to hurt you more than just humiliate you.
I seem to favor a higher and fairly tight guard in sparring, but on t3h str33t who knows, the few times i've been in dangerous altercations I wasn't thinking alot about my guard, or anything else.
Personally I am not comfortable with the idea of using feints in anything but sparring.
Oops jsut realized the age of the thread lol, sorry.
