Stabbing, or "How Knife-Fighting and Defense Pan Out"

HOW A KNIFE FIGHT REALLY LOOKS
This video is of Torin Hill, Director of Training for TORIS.
There are 4 different classes of observing a violent incident. Two of them identify with the Victim. The other two identify with the knife man. Read below and recognize the danger in observing this video the way you do (and judging from the comments you've probably failed already and are seeing it from class III)

IV: The socialized individual that identifies with the victim. This observation is focused completely on the realization that a man has been stabbed 13+ times... and it could easily be them. This is a common perspective, held by most people. It is exploitable, and precisely the reason that people succumb to intimidation.

III: The socially-trained fighter that recognizes the failure on the victim's part. This observation is hallmarked by comments such as "I would have done this.." or "He totally could have blocked that if he knew...".
This level of observation focuses on 'training to not be victimized'. This viewpoint is less common, but starts with self-evident failure and then tries to rectify it.

II: The socio- or psychopath. This person identifies with the knife man. They recognize success (e.g. killing a man), and will use footage or anecdotes as data to improve their own performance. As an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xL_PlbqyLcI
Kell stabs Blackmon 67 times. The Medical Examiner stated that 2 of those injuries were fatal. The violence-minded would watch that and see themselves as Troy Kell. Thankfully, a jury would watch that and see themselves being savaged by Kell. The sports combatant might see that and see themselves fending off Kell's accomplice and taking the knife from Kell.

I: Goal-oriented... identifying the successful person in this incident (read: stabber, not stabbee), and looking to improve upon their performance. Your goal is to see the video on the left (or in the link) and see yourself as the knife man. How can you best accomplish what they did. How can you do it better? Can you beat a 32.5:1 ratio of lethal injuries. How would you go about that? What is the goal? What is superfluous? Observing in this manner makes footage from prison riots and the nightly news informative. It provides concrete examples of successful violence, and provides a foundation to work from— a foundation that focuses on successfully using violence as a tool.
