Except she can't hurt anybody...

All right, next confusing question. We have a Healer with a Self Defense skill. We have a nasty evil Badguy with a spear who attacks the Healer and her friends. They engage in an Extended Contest. At the end the Healer has won. How has she triumphed over the Badguy? Since the Badguy isn't actually hurt at all at the end of the contest can he go off and attack the Healer's friends despite being 'defeated'?
