We all live in an unpredictable world with emotionally unstable people. Police officers and other protective services officers often put themselves in more dangerous situations than the average civilian due to the nature of the work they perform. The ability to confidently protect and serve civilians while maintaining self-protection is vital to public safety.
Law Enforcement Training Fight Styles:
Simple defenses and counters that expose the officer to the least amount of risk for injury are critical to effective law enforcement training. Kru Chris uses brutal striking methods from Muay Thai combined with control and grappling techniques borrowed from wrestling and Brazilian Jui-Jitsu. Police officers, correctional facilities officers, and other protective services officials learn how to quickly remain and gain physical control with simple tactics that are easy to remember. No one has the time to execute an entire combination sequence when lives are at stake.
