W.J.I.–CRIMINAL 810.  [No Duty to Retreat, but a Factor in Reasonableness of Self Defense]

There is no duty to retreat. However, in determining whether the defendant reasonably believed the amount of force used was necessary to prevent or terminate the interference, you may consider whether the defendant had the opportunity to retreat with safety, whether such retreat was feasible, and whether the defendant knew of the opportunity to retreat.
