Street fights are unlike your gym sparring or drills in that they are very chaotic. They are spontaneous, they have trigger points and bad things can happen in an instant. There are however certain principles that must be known when it comes to street fights.
It goes without saying that your goal should always be to not get involved in any sort of a street fight. It’s best to just deescalate the situation by talking with the other side; or, if that fails, to excuse yourself and walk away.
However, you might find yourself in situations in which you just can’t find a way out from.
In that case, martial arts training will be of immense help for your self-defense.
