From the filthy streets of war-torn Saigon to the crime-ridden underbelly of Portland's infamous skid row, Loren W. Christensen has been there, holding the "thin blue line." In this groundbreaking video production from Paladin Press, Christensen distills more than 25 years of martial arts and law enforcement defensive tactics training into a street-proven system that is efficient, easy to learn and legally defensible. This is not a contrived system of new techniques; it is a tightly structured course that teaches you the secrets of making the joint locks, holds and takedowns you already know more effective and painful to the subject. This course also reveals pressure points that really work, striking techniques that maximize pain but minimize injury and the critical combative principles that will get you out of a jam even if your technique falls completely apart. Although designed for law enforcement professionals, this video set is also an invaluable tool for any jujitsu or aikido practitioner who wants to make his joint-lock techniques street realistic. For information purposes only.
Loren W. Christensen began his law enforcement career in 1967 when he served in the army as a military policeman in the United States and in Vietnam. He joined the Portland, Oregon, Police Bureau in 1972 and retired in 1997. During those years, he specialized in street gangs, defensive tactics, dignitary protection, and patrolling the bizarre streets of skid row. He now writes full time and teaches martial arts.
