The importance of practicing Jiu-Jitsu and self-defense by law enforcement officials has been proven once again. Furthermore, it has been proven that not having such knowledge can be downright dangerous in the daily life of a police officer – and may be the difference between success and failure. In more severe cases, between life and death.

A San Francisco, California police officer felt that first hand. He was attacked when approaching a suspect during a routine inspection of a bus. At that very moment, though, instructor Pedro Arrigoni had just left a class.

The suspect already mounted and raining down blows to the police officer’s face, Pedro intervened and took control of the situation, using a choke hold.

“When he was about to pass out, he said: ‘I give up, I give up,’” said Arrigoni, the teacher at AB Mixed Martial Arts.

“I do Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Once you have the guy under control, you don’t need to do anything else. I feel the San Francisco police should train Jiu-Jitsu,” said the fighter in local newspaper The San Francisco Examiner.

Mais uma vez foi provada a importância da prática de Jiu-Jitsu e defesa pessoal nas forças policiais. Mais que isso, ficou comprovado que não ter tais conhecimentos pode ser altamente prejudicial no dia-a-dia de um oficial da lei, pode ser a diferença entre o êxito e o fracasso. Em casos mais agudos, entre a vida e a morte.

Em San Francisco, na Califórnia, um policial sentiu na pele isso. Ao abordar um suspeito numa inspeção de rotina num ônibus, foi atacado. No entanto, neste momento, o instrutor Pedro Arrigoni acabava de sair de uma aula.

Com o suspeito já montado e socando a cara do policial, Pedro interveio e controlou a ação com um estrangulamento.

“Quando ele estava prestes a desmaiar, ele disse: ‘Eu desisto, eu desisto’”, disse Arrigoni, professor na AB Mixed Martial Arts.

“Faço Jiu-Jitsu brasileiro. Depois de ter o cara sob seu controle, você não precisa fazer mais nada. Acho que a polícia de San Francisco deveria treinar Jiu-Jitsu”, completa o lutador ao jornal local “San Francisco Examiner”.
