This is sort of the other side of Doughnut's thread about anger on the job. Do you use MA training as a form of stress management? Does the training (long term) help day-to-day in dealing with the "non-violent" but highly stressful situations? Are meditation and breathing technqiues part of your MA practice?
PS: I am an LEO and a MA practioner. IMHO, I have found that MA training has helped me immeasuarably over the years in more ways than I would try to talk about here.
