One of the things that cannot be overestimated is the value of jiu jitsu for the law enforcement members. Hand to hand combat and the ability to control a suspect without injuring them seem like a no brainer but for many LEOs around the world jiu jitsu isn’t an element of training.

It blows my mind how when it’s your job to detain and control another humans body you’re not training the grappling martial arts. This officer was lucky these citizens decided to help him or he was in a world of hurt!
