The potential for jiu jitsu to enable police officers to be better at their job is enormous. We often observe videos like trips and perfect stand up technique enabling men in nasty situations to defend themselves regardless of what side of the conflict they’re on.
However for Law Enforcement Officers there’s an obvious benefit to knowing ground work – aka brazilian jiu-jitsu but for some police their knowledge of grappling is so bad that it can lead to some tragicomic incidents such as this one:
In this instance, the police officer apprehends a suspect. When he attempts to handcuff him, the suspect tries to flee, only to be taken down by the police officer. They grapple on the ground for a few minutes, the police officer controls him in the mount and even places a head arm choke before other police officers arrive on the scene.
