There aren’t many people that leave the house during the day or at night that intend to get into a street fight.  There are some that do but those people are few and far between as the average Joe has no intentions of getting into a physical altercation…EVER.

However; when a physical altercation does happen to occur there are certain rules that some people expect to be abided by but there is no rule book for street fighting.  Therefore; things happen that one does not expect and this can lead to devastating consequences.

There are those instances when this happens and the question is going to be how should you react? Well, neither nor myself promote street fighting or physical acts of violence in any form or fashion but there are those occasions that arise which simply require that you defend yourself and you need to be aware of the rule set, or lack thereof, that is to be expected. These are situations that your safety and your life depends on your knowledge and ability to perform in a self-defense situation…so what is proper street fighting etiquette? There is none. Period.

In the video below, we see some unique, or rather unexpected techniques utilized with brutal consequences…the slam.  This technique can be employed with devastating results especially given the fact that most street fights occur, well, in the street.


Being slammed or dumped on your head is no fun to begin with but to have it done on concrete is an entirely different story and one that is incredibly dangerous.  This is what makes street fighting so dangerous is its lack of rules and unpredictability.  Again, unsanctioned fighting in the streets is definitely not condoned but check out the video below to see exactly what could happen should one choose to engage in this activity.
