Picture of Robert Koga Teaching "Aikido" to LAPD Officers in 1966

Published caption: "Officer Bob Koga shows other policemen at a special school how to use aikido to remove a seated demonstrator without injuring him. Koga applies pressure behind "demonstrator's" ears, above, then quickly grabs arm and twists wrist below. At right is Officer Bernard Finks, head of Civil Disturbance-Riots Control school. In role of sit-ins, from left, are policemen Ron Meade, Robert Calentino and Gary Garrison."

His book published years ago (out of print) had a whole chapter on this sort of stuff.

Re: Picture of Robert Koga Teaching "Aikido" to LAPD Officers in 1966

I saw a private video of one of his law enforcement seminars where he was teaching the kubotan. He was doing some amazing things like scenarios where he (the cop) would be on the ground and he would strike a standing attacker on a leg pressure point with the kubotan - bringing the attacker to the ground writhing in pain. Keep in mind these were cops - not compliant ukes.

This footage was way more interesting than the set that came out later from black belt imo.
