Pre-emptive attack sequence three:

 

Here we see Daryl working at Close Quarters from the Jack Benny position. From here he drops steps violently forward and throws a sharp, snappy downward hammer-fist strike to the high line off the lead hand.

(I got this from Richard Dimitri who said that one of his students had broke a guy's nose to great effect with this little shot) certainly good enough for our starter for ten).

From here I found that a wheeling elbow with the opposite arm flows real well as a follow up. Note; that if after the first shot your aggressor starts to stumble back out of range; then you must step forward to catch him as you elbow, so that now you land with the same leg forward as for your elbow strike. From here flank with an off hand tiger's jab and finish with cycling.
