Law enforcement officers are increasingly at risk of violence, injury, and death at the hands of the citizens they are assigned to protect. During the past ten years, there has been a massive upsurge in line-of-duty deaths from intentional violent acts. The question is: what can police trainers do to reduce the trend of violent assaults and murders of police officers?

They are not dependent on strength, flexibility, or size and are easy to train and master.
