Brawling

Every child knows how to throw a punch. Even the platter-fed children of the richest patricians wrestle each other in their infancy.

For many of the inhabitants of the city, learning to fight with one's bare hands is a matter of life and death. The survival rate of Steps district children is slim. Those who survive learn how to deal with daily black eyes and broken noses. Not surprisingly, such an environment breeds brutal, if unrefined, fighting techniques.

Brawling is a general term for any kind of "untrained" street fighting. It is learned as much as it is taught, and there are an incredible variety of individual techniques that don't correspond to any fighting style.
