The Chewjitsu Podcast

Nov 9, 2020

Paul Hogan is a police officer, BJJ brown belt, and is one of the founders of “Blue Jitsu,” an organization that offers free jiu-jitsu instruction and seminars for police officers in Lexington and the surrounding areas.

Paul shares his start in wrestling and finding BJJ soon after becoming a police officer. Paul discusses the significant benefits that Jiu-Jitsu offered to keeping himself and others safe, why police officers avoid training BJJ, the purpose and effectiveness of seminars for law enforcement, how to control suspects within the new framework of the law, the idea behind “Blue Jitsu,” the trauma that police officers deal with, what changes need to be made for police training, how much training is needed to be effective in restraining suspects, and the best ways to incorporate training into an officer’s schedule.
