Reminds me of this good article

From what I understand they dont have classes, they have courses, quick and easy lessons.

The description of the aikido classes worries me, especialy the fact that they advertise with a black belt exclusivly trained in Japan.

So why isnt this just about money?

Re: POLICE and AIKIDO

Aikido training and Police work well together because Aikido is a direct, immediate control art that involves minimal energy from the P.O. and controls the perp quickly when applied correctly.

WE provide training to Law Enforcement Officers across the nation, therefore we do not have a School per say with a schedule of "classes" We travel and conduct seminar style training. They are far from "quick and easy" as you say in your reply. We believe that by exposing various Aikido based techniques to Officers around the nation that perhaps we can create a greater interest in Aikido and get more Officers to consider joining Local Dojos or Aikido Clubs.

Aikido is widely looked upon as a non effective art for realistic police work and self defense the Mixed Martial arts boom has many departments going to a MMA based system of training.

We are simply trying to show that Aikido and jiu-jitsu CAN be effective in a Police Enviroment. And yes we do accept compensation for our instruction to cover our travel costs.

The reference to our instructor being exclusively trained in Japan, is that there are simply many non-legit, self proclaimed Aikido Black Belts popping up in the USA these days. Our Instructor was trained in Japan and Is certified With the World Aikido HQ in Tokyo, just like many of you are.

I hope this clarifies any concerns that you may have

Stay Safe

Re: Police and Aikido

I had posted a scenario under, damn, what was the title of that thread? G.I. something. Maybe one of these guys can point you in the right direction for the proper thread title. Anyway, I gave an example of how Aikido has helped me. Good luck finding the thread!
