How to keep your guard up in a fight

http://youtu.be/Vs8Ls6Dx1F0

It’s been a while since I wrote a “how-to” guide so here is another one: how to keep your guard up in a fight.
First, a quick explanation: The focus of this guide is combat sports like MMA, muay Thai and boxing. That said, to a degree, you can use the same information for self-defense and traditional martial arts as well. In those, you sometimes have to keep your hands in a specific place, for instance on center-line, chambered at the hip, etc. Some of the ideas I write here will apply there as well but not all of them. As always, use whatever you can and ignore the rest.
