SERIOUS CONSIDERATIONS

  • Common question: “Should every cop in America be a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu?”

    No! Every cop officer in America should be proficient in law enforcement defensive tactics. BJJ principles and techniques will invariably influence any solid defensive tactics program. Defensive tactics is its own unique martial art. BJJ is not law enforcement defensive tactics.

  • Can typical martial arts training develop bad habits for the law enforcement officer?

    Yes! Attend one of our courses or listen to one of our podcasts and you’ll learn how typical martial arts training can develop bad habits for the law enforcement officer.

  •  Is the defensive tactics program you are considering or involved in headed by an expert on the use of force and deemed an expert by any United States Federal Court?

    If not, why?

  • Some “popular” defensive tactics programs do not allow “certified instructors” to teach officers outside their own department/agency? They require that each department pay to have an instructor on staff.

    What about small departments that can’t afford to pay for instructor training? 

    SSGT Certified Instructors are allowed to teach anyone within the criminal justice system. As it should be!

  • Does the defensive tactics program you are considering or involved in provide detailed step-by-step training manuals as well as written exams and practical exams?

    SSGT does!

  • Does the defensive tactics program you are considering or involved in have an end-user injury rate below 1%?

    SSGT does!

  • Does the defensive tactics program you are considering or involved in have a 25-year track record of success in the field?

    SSGT does!

  • Does the defensive tactics program you are considering or involved in have a board of numerous veteran law enforcement officers that guide and direct the program?

    SSGT does!
