I am looking to start a career as a police officer in the next couple of years and want to know what the best MA i could train in would be. I currently train in muay thai but have heard aikido and jui-jitsu are great for law enforcement personell. Any help would be appreciated as i am willing to put in the time to train in multiple disciplines.

cool, thanks. I have heard a lot about Aikido for LEO. Do you think a form of jui-jitsu would also be beneficial?

I wouldnt take jujitsu of any form for law enforcment, because it is STRICTLY ground fighting! Aikido is standing up and on the ground, you can do both.

Choose whatever art suits you best, but I would advise either an art that is predominantly throwing, locking and pinning, such as aikido or judo, or alternatively a system of self defence that comes from a mix of such arts. but be warned, i am very biased toward such arts.

Striking arts are every bit as good, but as a proffesional police officer they will land you in trouble every time.

Karate Kid,

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is mainly ground fighting. Japanese Ju Jitsu is not.

Agreed.

Have you found that your MA study has complimented the stuff they teach at work?

Budo.

Kawinning, I am a Criminal Justice major at Temple University and plan to become a police officer in the next couple of years as well. Aikido seems good because the locks and such can be done without actually injuring someone, but I currently study Judo...also, I'm in the Philadelphia area and many of the students in my club are Philadelphia police officers. With just some proficiency(sp) in Judo you can learn effective techniques to bring a suspect down and keep him/her there.
As it has been said also, do what is comfortable for you.
