ID ICJI 1521 SELFDEFENSE PARTICIPANTS IN MUTUAL COMBAT

The right of selfdefense is not available to a person who, by prearrangement or agreement, engages in mutual combat, unless and until the person has really and in good faith endeavored to decline further combat, and has fairly and clearly informed the adversary of a desire for peace and that the person has abandoned the contest.  If, after the adversary has been so informed and given an opportunity to quit the fight, such adversary continues the combat, such continuance of the fight is a new assault by the adversary, and the person seeking to withdraw from the fight may exercise the right of selfdefense.
