Hey all. I want to know what you guys are doing to train for police work. I go to the gym about 4-5 times a week and this consist of a mixture of cario and weights. Last year I joined a boxing club and it is great cario and good for self defense. i love it. i want to get into a martial art also. i was looking at jui jitsu(spelling) and tried one class but time restrictions prevent this right now. what are the rest of you doing to work out in the gym or martial arts or what ever. just wanting to know the different feed back. i know the police will teach self defence but more is always better.

I teach Karate, actually Chito-Ryu Karate at Infinity Martial Arts Karate here in Halifax.
It's a family owned and operated club actually. I think Karate will be perfect for you man!! It's practical self-defence that you can learn and hopefully not use on the street. :lol:

Just home from OPS (1st week) and one of the things that the defensive tactics instructions stressed on us is that even if you come into the program with martial arts background - their techniques are not related at all - and they find that the \"martial artists\" have to be re-trained. So good on you if you want to go that route and prepare yourself - but don't go on the premises that it is preparing you for your policing - apparently it doesn't.
Just a little information from OPS ....

Try taking Aikido. It is the closest martial art that you can learn that would be comparable to the teachings you would recieve at the police academy.
