To: (insert name), Training Coordinator, Human Resources Division

Re: Implementation of Jiu Jitsu Training Program at (your department)

Proposal: Police culture and training modalities are changing at a rapid pace and police agencies must constantly be at the forefront of those changes. As such, this proposal is to offer Jiu Jitsu training to members of the department to augment their current skill set.

Why: The Art of Jiu Jitsu is based on gross motor skill, leverage and body mechanics. It is, by all accounts, the most effective martial art in the world that is rapidly being implemented by police departments across the globe. Jiu Jitsu is best suited for law enforcement professionals because of its “scalability factor” or, the ability to adapt from low to high levels of force depending on subject behavior. It allows officers to defend themselves from a variety of situations including but not limited to, incidents that involve ground fighting, take downs, arrest pins and weapon retention.

Benefits: A trained officer in the basics of Jiu Jitsu will not only better be able to defend themselves but they will also be able to use the techniques to better control and keep suspects safe during arrests. A limited toolbox leads to intermediate weapon deployment or hard strikes when they aren’t necessarily needed. If the only tool you have is a hammer, then all problems are seen as nails. This proposal’s primary goal is to give officers real, learnable and simple techniques to help them carry out their duties in a more confident manner.

Further Benefits: Jiu Jitsu is proven to relieve stress, reduce PTSD symptoms and build camaraderie among its practitioners. Not only will officers learn valuable techniques, they will also benefit from a full body workout both anaerobically and aerobically. Jiu Jitsu is highly adaptable to different age and physical limitations that practitioners may have.

Liability: One of the biggest concerns employers may have about extra-curricular training is the potential liability that could effect the department during use of force situations. How can (your department) reconcile this type of training with the current policies set forth by the province (state) and the department as a whole? The answer is that the techniques taught would be building on what they already know and have learned. Classes will expand on basics and improve upon them via repetition and correction. Officers will learn techniques that will increase their safety by teaching both the mechanics of the human body and proper articulation of use of force incidents.

When: In order to make training available to all members at least twice a month, the proposed time slot would be 1600 hrs to 1700 hrs in the (your dept) gym (mat space). Training days would be set on different days, prior to night shift or on a day off so that front line officers can take in the training. Sweat pants and tee shirts would be the only equipment needed.

Training Facilitator: (information about the trainer) Eg: Ari Knazan has 35 years of martial art training and holds a 4th degree black belt in Goshin Jiu Jitsu, Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Black Belts in Aikido and Daito Ryu Jujutsu. Ari has been teaching Jiu Jitsu for 16 years consistently and has taught over 100 seminars in both Canada and the USA. He is a use of force expert who is well versed in the policies, procedures and theories of self protection management. His focus is to keep officers safe during training but also provide a great work out and skills that can immediately be implemented on the job.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to communicating further on this subject.
