Morpheus remembers the first lesson in combat he was ever taught, rather than learning it himself, or having it implanted directly into his brain. He learned it from a friend before he was ever brought out of the Matrix.

That lesson had nothing to do with fighting physically, or about defending himself or ways to avoid a fight. In reality, it was not so much a lesson in combat as in leadership, and it has stood him in good stead ever since.

It was phrased in these words:"You try not to get anybody killed, you wind up getting everybody killed."

Morpheus knows that is true. He has never forgotten it. And he lives by it still.
