OK OUJI-CR 8-50.  DEFENSE OF SELF-DEFENSE – WHEN DEFENSE NOT AVAILABLE

Self-defense is permitted a person solely because of necessity. Self-defense is not available to a person who (was the aggressor)/(provoked another with the intent to cause the altercation)/(voluntarily entered into mutual combat), no matter how great the danger to personal security became during the altercation unless the right of self-defense is reestablished.
