Ambush and Assault Encounters:
" One of the worst-case scenarios for a law enforcement officer is to be taken to the ground by an aggressive subject. Jiu Jitsu teaches students to use reliable leverage-based techniques to neutralize the initial barrage of strikes and escape from underneath the subject to regain a position of advantage. Additionally, since the techniques do not rely on strength, speed, or athleticism, they can be employed by smaller officers against larger, stronger subjects."
Believe it or not, there are Operators who refuse to obey a lawful request to exit their vehicle. However, most agencies do not teach Officers efficient non violent techniques to remove the resisting occupant. What that leads to is inefficient tactics (Tug of War) and the Officer Exhausting.
According to the FBI, approximately 12% of Police Officers are killed each year with their own firearm. Taking a gun out at the wrong time, often times in fear, can be a bad choice. Students are taught a series of simple, yet highly effective, weapon retention principles from standing and ground positions which will defeat an attacker's attempt to disarm the Officer from any position in the fight.
A common natural reaction for a person being punched in the face is to turn away, leaving their back exposed. With more people learning MMA, even an untrained person with an opportunity can wrap their arm around a neck. Without the proper escape strategy, First Responders can succumb to exhaustion which could lead to detrimental results.
Edged weapons can come from just about anywhere in the fight and First Responders need to have a plan to stop the barrage of cuts. From standing to the ground, students learn simple defense strategies.
For Law Enforcement, victory isn’t achieved until the subject is in handcuffs. Students will learn different handcuffing techniques from virtually every position in the fight, after they have exhausted the suspect.
The HSDF Instructor Cadre share their Law Enforcement and Jiu Jitsu experience in real world scenarios to benefit the students.
What's something exciting your business offers? Say it here.
The average person can pass out from a proper "choke" in under 10 seconds followed by possible brain damage just after 30 seconds and possibly death after one minute. (These are approximates) With MMA and UFC being popular in society, even an untrained person can apply an improper choke?
Not only does an Jiu Jitsu provide students with control and exhaust techniques but it also provides students with confidence, not cockiness, and a level of calmness to handle stress more efficiently.
