I am an LEO and restraining techniques are very valuable to us as I think everyone already knows. But I'm also a martial artist and I believe that restraining techniques are a small part of the big picture. I think John and Badger made excellent points in their discussions and I'm sure there are other points that can be made as well. Good discussion!

Badger, can you clarify what you mean? Are you saying joint locks and/or breaks (as singular events) do not happen, or that lock flows (a drill) do not happen?
Comment by Badger Johnson on June 17, 2015 at 12:26pm
I'm just saying it never happens in real life except when the 'perp' is being restrained by an LEO. As such, I think it's disingenuous to demo it as a one-on-one, or H2H maneuver.

Badger, each 'lock' is a break/dislocation. The lock flow is utilized to understand how to use the opponents energy against them. When he pushes or pulls to evade a particular movement, you capitalize on it and snap a limb/joint. The fewer intact bones he has, the fewer 'weapons' he has to employ.

As locks, they work tremendously well for LEOs and security work. :)

Good stuff as usual Wes. :)

Good set but only for use by LEOs, since the opponent could simply rip his arm away, or do a flip kick to the defender's groin for a distraction. With an LEO, you have to comply or risk higher level armed force.
