This article entitled "Honored Teacher"
describes Shinichi Suzuki sensei of the Hawaii Ki Foundation who has been teaching aikido to Maui police recruits for over 20 years. From the article: "That was the only training we had for self-defense -- Sensei Suzuki. He taught us everything from using a baton to wrist holds. For all those years, he was the use-of-force training for the department. [...] He built your confidence in doing this job, even when you had to go up against more than one person or someone bigger than you. That's what it meant to me as an officer."
