Street Fighting is no-holds-barred hand-to-hand combat between individuals or groups of people in public places such as streets and bars. It generally implies a lack of rules, allowing the use of weapons and dirty tactics, thus highly increasing the risk of the practitioners getting seriously injured or killed.
The main difference between street fighting and a self defense situation is that a street fight is an avoidable consensual engagement between both parties. A typical situation might involve two people arguing in a bar, then one suggests stepping outside, where the fight commences. Thus, it is often possible to avoid the fight by backing off, whereas in self-defense, a person is actively trying to safely escape the situation, using force if necessary.
