Instructors: L Jackson

Course Length: One Day – 8 HRS

Cost: $50.00

Course Description:

The Intermediate Use of Force Course is designed to provide students with a basic

overview of Aikido techniques that can directly be applied to law enforcement Officers

and their everyday duties. Aikido, a Japanese martial art, is preformed by blending with

the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it

head on. It is also one of the few martial arts that takes responsibility for the attacker’s

safety which causes the least amount of bodily injury to the attacker. Drills and

techniques taught in the course are directly related to situations Patrol and Police Officers

find themselves in on a daily basis and will closely resemble real-world deployment.

Principals stressed in the course will include: come along techniques, arm pinning

techniques, subject take down techniques, etc.
