Abstract:

Drawing heavily on life experiences, legal education, and martial arts training, this text covers police defensive tactics, links ancient self-defense traditions to modern police forces, and recommends continual training of self-defense techniques throughout police service. The text emphasizes that the mind is the key to any human interaction that may escalate to the point where defensive tactics are necessary. Clear thinking, a survival mentality, and well thought out strategies and tactics may allow a police officer to anticipate, avoid, or expeditiously conclude a physical confrontation in an appropriate manner. Beginning chapters in the text cover martial arts and the police and prisons as gladiator schools, as well as defenses against hidden, disguised, and improvised weapons. Additional chapters deal with police officer survival of bladed weapon encounters, the enhancement of restraint techniques, handcuffing tips for professionals, Filipino martial arts and law enforcement baton training, the carotid neck restraint controversy, defense tactics and the smaller police officer, and sports vision training for defensive tactics. Additional information on police defensive clothing and unarmed self-defense against knives is appended.
