main difference between street fighting and self-defense is, that
a street fight is avoidable, whereas a self-defense situation is
not. A typical scenario might involve two men 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,
while in self-defense, a person will not know they are about to
be attacked until it happens.
the martial arts community, street fighting and self-defense are
often considered synonymous.
