Re: aikido for police
Hello sir. Cpl.Nelson here. I'm a Federal copper. Aikido is good, very good for police work. However, never would I suggest that it's enough alone, or any other style for that matter. I would suggest that Aikido, Hapkido, Aiki Jujutsu and some other Jujutsu systems out there are your best for police work. I would also suggest you train in some grappling stlyes as well. Like it or not, one of these days, your gonna make that one traffic stop alone and the fool you pulled over is gonna be a humungous smelly dude. Your gonna be taken to the ground if you havn't shot him yet. If so, you had better know how to handle yourself down there and most importantly do not panic. Write to me anytime you wish Trooper Bosworth, I think I can probably help you.
Take care and God Bless.
Merry Christmas and Happy new Year to you too as well as the rest of the Aiki family here.
