An example for that is defending one's self, their family and the innocent from rape, murder and exile. To do that, violence could be needed. I'm not gonna look at a muscular guy holding a knife coming towards me to rape me in a corner with no way to run and do nothing. I don't wanna get raped
Here's where teachings of violence come. It could be important to be violent only as much as needed to get rid of this disastrophe. Violently disarming the offender and neutralizing him to get the authorities to take care of the rest is good enough.
