Maintain Mid - Range Distance Away
Optimal Distance From Trunks
Most of Trunk's big attacks is melee range, and he would often lounge towards you to strike. Maintaining mid-distance can give you the distance needed to evade most of his attacks.
Recovers From Martial Arts Combos Quickly
Trunks can recover from combo stuns quite quickly, meaning you'll be left exposed if you try to chain too much combos onto him. Slower Special Attacks such as Kamehameha may give him opportunity to strike back.
Defend Against Shining Sword Attack For An Opening
Shining Sword Attack can be defended for a relatively small HP loss but exposes Trunks for a long time, making it a very good HP trading method.
