This website is not intended to condone, glorify or fetishize violence.

The purpose of this website is to study and learn from violence. Many people claim that they understand violence, how it works, how people behave, their motivations, and how they can defend themselves. Much of this is not based in fact, but opinion gleaned from anecdotes and popular fiction.

There are already plenty of websites who upload footage of violence, but they are gratuitous without exception. Clickbait titles and a lack of useful categories or search terms are the norm.

realviolence.com is for those who are interested or participate in self defence training and martial arts, and/or involved in law enforcement, security or the military. realviolence.com uses categorical terms such as technique, tactic, profession, and weapon. This is designed to be more useful for those who wish to learn from the videos rather than to simply be entertained.
