Thanks to both of you. I'm really surprised that I didn't get more responses to this as a topic. One thought was that it might be more common today for younger LEOs to have trained in an MA of some type before getting on the job, then re-evaluating it- Wolfman's experience. The other was that LEOs having been on the job perhaps in their 30's would seek one out looking for reliable tools - which would seem to be you Fletch. I'm sort of a "tweener" but it was mostly after.

Wolfman, was the chat with your sensei an enlightening one? I mean that in the sense that he helped you see how to adapt the lessons of the dojo to the reality of application?
