Jiu-Jitsu Cop Holding Down A Suspect With A Kimura

The long hot summer has already begun in the Big Apple. With NYPD officers already feeling the heat of their job, large crowds who point smart phones at them while they attempt to subdue uncooperative suspects only add to the tension.

One officer taking a stolen car suspect into custody apparently went beyond the boundaries of duty by both pointing a gun in the direction of assembled bystanders and attacking another man who was putting a camera phone in his face.

Taken off the streets pending an inquiry, the NYPD officer under investigation is part of a growing problem where officers are no longer able to easily draw the line between bystanders and threats to their personal safety.


  1. You’re talking out of your ass. Even if you had a background in LE, if you weren’t there, you’re opinion is irrelevant.

  2. I’m a paramedic whose worked in the field for 10 years and have 30 years of martial arts experience even though I have small amount of experience in BJJ. I’m assaulted an average of 3 – 5 times a year and have had someone try to kill me 4 times in my career. This includes someone trying to pull a pistol on me, someone swinging a board at my head, and being trapped in a confined space with someone high on a PCP like substance.
    There’s a difference between practicing martial arts in an environment where you play a game for points and having to use it to defend your life. An assailant who’s on a mind altering substance doesn’t tap when you get them in a joint lock and there isn’t a ref to stop the fight when you “submit” them or to stop their friends from jumping in to help them out.
    You seem to write a lot of articles condemning police. You need to get a job where you have to put your life in jeopardy to serve the public and you’ll come to realize how ignorant many of your statements are.
