jiu jitsu training for police agencies
No more checking boxes and going through the motions. We partner directly with your agency to provide consistent, realistic training to make your instructors and officers actually proficient in their control and defense skills.
Your Department's Personal Use-of-Force Trainer
We don't just show up to put on a single course, hand out paper certificates and then disappear until it's time to "recertify." Our agency program includes 24/7 coaching and consulting, where we can help structure your in-service training, write lesson plans, break down body cam footage, create custom training videos and answer technique questions from your officers.
A Curriculum of Realistic Control & Defense Techniques That Actually Work
Our curriculum was created from our years of experience on the street and on the mats. It's based on our Jiu Jitsu Five-O Fight Formula; Takedown, establish a dominant position, control, cuff. We'll show your officers exactly how to do this, whether they're trying to make an arrest or defend themselves from common attacks.
Retain What You Learn With Our Online Technique Library
We ensure that your officers retain what they learned by giving them unlimited annual access to our online curriculum, which features detailed videos of every technique we teach. We can also create custom technique videos based on your agency's needs.
Ongoing Jiu Jitsu Training Classes (Optional)
Consistency equals proficiency. We can work with your agency to teach a monthly training course, either in person or remote, so that your officers and instructors continue training and improving the foundational skills they learned during the certification course.
We come to you and host a private, four day certification course for an unlimited number of your instructors. This approach ensures that your instructors are receiving the highest level of training through a smaller class size and individualized attention.
Train beyond the instructor course and retain what you learned by having annual access to our online technique library, which features videos of every technique we taught during the physical course. Watch and study techniques right from your phone or computer, on your own time.
We don't just hand out paper certificates and then disappear. We'll schedule quarterly Zoom calls with your instructors to to keep in touch and make sure they're getting everything the need to succeed.
