Effort to reward ratio

Defeating the attacker at your own expense is essentially a 'sacrifice' tactic.
This is not how the internal arts operate.

Commitment is limited.
Over-commitment is a major fault.

All movements are performed in a manner that ensures the greatest effect for the least amount of effort.
With practice you will hardly look to be moving at all.
That is part of what makes the art 'internal'.
