  1. Hit first - stay on the offensive
  2. Frame your opponent
  3. Frame the debate
  4. Spot inconsistencies in your opponent’s argument
  5. Force your opponent to answer questions
  6. Not getting distracted
  7. Admit when you don't know something
  8. Don't get sucked in by the paradigm
  9. Give them meaningless victories
  10. Body language matter


I personally agree with all but #2. (so long as we accept it's true regardless of the opponent) He states this as a defensive move, but it's presented as an ad hominem fallacy in my opinion.
