Verdediging bij mes aanval: kennis- en ervaringsniveau van de verdediger
- No experience. You can't even know what you don't know. You can have a lot of information and tools. You can be an excellent instructor of those tools.
- 1 Encounter. Mentioned in previous post. Tend to be focused on a single answer and teaching tends to be more for personal therapy than the benefit of the students.
- Conscious incompetence. Somewhere, and following Ken Murray's lead on this it's around 3-5 real force incidents, the shock becomes less overwhelming and you start trying to apply your skills. Side effect, you realize how little your really know.
- Conscious competence. You still have to think, but you're starting to get good at it.
- Unconscious competence. You deal with the problem without consciously thinking about it. Tend to make poor teachers, because they don't consciously recall what they do, and a lot of technical nuance has become complete mental gestalts.
- Split mind. I've only heard one other person talk about this, but you let your body/hindbrain deal with the primary problem unconsciously and divert your conscious mind to something useful. In my case, it was almost always composing the report.
- One of my threshold observations was that people who has prevailed in a single violent encounter were consistently the worst teachers.
- Simple truth is that no matter how alert, fit, skilled, experienced, equipped... name any combination you want... there is something out there that can crush you like a bug on a windshield.
