To make an honorable surrender in armored combat, usually when badly outnumbered or incapable of further resistance. It is courteous to offer to permit an opponent in such a state to yield, but it must be done tactfully, as many combatants consider it dishonorable to surrender under any circumstances and might take such an offer as evidence of arrogance or even an insult. It is usually inappropriate to make this offer to a much more experienced combatant than oneself. There are occasional circumstances when it is graceful to yield, particularly when one feels one has been bested in a bear-pit tournament bout and does not wish to further tire an opponent who is holding the field, or when further resistance entails a wait for other combatants while equipment must be adjusted or repaired. Yielding to overwhelming force in melee combat is more likely to be acceptable, and is often done for safety reasons.
