Re: Is Aikido effective for police?

Looks like you guys are having fun.

I was training MOUT today and teaching weapons retention on room clearing. No time to do video.

If you have time, it would be good to see your take on weapons retention.

I concentrate on proper "combat crouch" and posture, always driving forward into the room, once the weapon is grabbed continue driving forward, extending out through the end of the barrel, resist pulling back, but going forward. Then doing small circles, much like the jo. You end up with a variety of things that look familiar to us. nikkyo, being the predominate one.

Anyway, I'd love to see your take on this from the other perspective, that is "good guy" weapons retention.

Fun stuff!
