    Unibrow -

    If you do teach the police tactics at the gonq, are you a member of the Ottawa Police Service?

    Unibrow, I recall you saying you that you teach police training at Algonquin College. I'm wondering what martial art sytle the training is based on. Ok, I understand that the police tactics will not be a strict teaching of a 'style'. I'm just curious as to what martial art sytle you think police training does, or should most closely resemble.
    Greetings. My capacity at PPSI/Algonquin is dt/personal safety training for the students/staff & corporate services-the "civvy" side. The focus is on those going into higher risk professions in the health, social, & justice sectors. The LEO's I've had the pleasure of training with are those choosing to supplement their training above & beyond their original foundation program. Police training for a long time has been a big advocate of the "sweet science" for proper upper body protection and delivery as well as for a good habit to develop for fitness maintenance. On leg training - keep your #$%^&ing feet on the ground! and so MT techniques there such as using knee thrusts, low leg shin sweeps/strikes, stomps for disarms. Jitsu comes in for escort & control and a lot more grappling in recent years for submission/weight displacement . So all in all it resembles much like MMA training-and has so for a long time. Jitsu and Boxing have long been recommended to them to keep training in. One trains for what they can resonably expect to encounter in their chosen profession, lifestyle, or sport etc. Of course, one should never stop training & learning. Bruce Lee started a positive trend towards MMA training & it's a tribute to that innovation that there's finally more & more of it available now in clubs and BJJ venues. My thoughts, for whatever their worth.
    cheers
