Re: Is Aikido effective for police?

Yes, Aikido is very affective for Police and i speak from actual arrest background experience as an NYPD Anti Crime Officer, of 15 Yrs. Aikido when applied direct firm grips on locks focusing on basics will work, and you will depend on Aikido when you have no nightstick,just open hands,you will learn how to off balance and lock/throw correctly.Aikido has and still does help me escape with little or no injuries when in conflict with criminals.Credit goes to my Sensei for always focusing on proper basics,the fancy stuff is for show.
