how do you brace? Just by standing still/halting?There's hotkeys for movement commands but they escape me right now.
Generally though you don't want to just "walk in" enemy formations. Charging gives significant attack boni to almost all units exept spearmen (they get one too, it's just small), you need to do an attack command for your units to charge.
Conversely, some units (mostly spearmen but there's others) can "brace" themselves from charges to minimise damage. They can't do that while moving though and they'll get full charage damage if they do. A cavalry unit can wreck spearmen if they charge into them while they move for example. You'll also need to face the unit charging you. Charges from the side or from behind do full damage as well.
