Guide to reducing incoming melee damage while operating at short range.


"Humans, while growing from toddler stage, learn to put our arms and hands out when falling to avoid further injury to our little shoulder-mounted melons and soft little torsos. However effective that is in helping us keep our shiny little chompers and button noses, it is detrimental in the event of a vehicle accident. If an accident appears imminent, you need to respond quickly and try to minimize damage. It’s all about mass and velocity. If you use your hands, arms and legs to brace for an impact of great severity. Your limbs are going to lose the battle, sure, but you will suffer greater injury than if you didn’t brace. Try and keep your extremities close to your body mass that is (hopefully) properly restrained."

The tips here are to protect oneself from car accidents but some of them might be useful in other situations.
