You should never corner something that you know is meaner than you because it will likely react aggressively to defend itself. When an animal or a person feels trapped and threatened, they may lash out and attack as a form of self-preservation. This can result in injury or harm to both parties involved. Therefore, it’s important to give space and avoid confronting something that you know is capable of causing harm. It’s always better to approach situations with caution and seek professional help if necessary, rather than putting yourself in a potentially dangerous situation.
Instead of cornering something that you know is meaner than you, it’s important to try to create a safe distance between yourself and the animal or person. If you’re dealing with a wild animal, it’s important to give it space and not approach it. In case you’re feeling threatened, try to slowly back away without turning your back on the animal or running, which can trigger a predatory response.
If you’re dealing with a person who is acting aggressively, try to remain calm and non-confrontational, and avoid escalating the situation. Try to create distance between yourself and the person by stepping back, and if possible, move to a safer location. If you feel like you’re in immediate danger, call for help from a trusted person or emergency services.
It’s important to remember that in situations where you feel threatened, your safety should be your top priority. So, always stay aware of your surroundings, trust your instincts, and take appropriate measures to protect yourself.

Yep. I had a shot at kung-fu for a few years. This was basic training 101.
Even if you’re highly skilled – really BECAUSE you’re highly skilled at beating the sh1t out of some aggressive loser, ethically it is not a first response but a last resource.
Walking or running away would be a far far safer option if the aggressor was armed.

So true. My drinking buddy of the 4th century BCE said ” Courage is knowing what not to fear.” There is a converse side to that!
