Take It Away

Leadership Relationships  

July 1, 2004

There seems to be a constant change of roles between officers based on rank, position, and seniority. We on the inside know that relationships between cops of different ranks are far more complex than what you see on a line organization chart.

Present the least vulnerable target. If you are under fire, you find cover. The same principle applies here. If you are physically attacked, you move, you angle, you put something between you and the attack (in this case, most likely your arms).

Surviving Knife Attacks  

June 1, 2004

The School of Hard Knocks  

February 1, 2004

The introduction comes in the form of a three-minute round of body sparring in a 6X6-foot ring against the trainers, all noted martial artists and police DT instructors in their own right.
