Can answering the question "Where's a safe place to stab someone?" reduce violence in the UK?

Street Doctors works on the rationale that giving at-risk kids information and survival skills can stop violence as much as prison terms for carrying weapons. The U.K.'s tabloid press likes to run wild with tales of feral Britain, but the truth is that many young people carrying knives are in fact terrified of becoming victims themselves. They also unaware of just how dangerous a stab wound can be.

This is a pretty unusual approach. I wonder if it will work?
