Cops Should Take BJJ

A recent video has gone viral of a young man helping a police officer arrest someone while they were resisting. The cop was obviously struggling so the BJJ student stepped in and even told the officer what to do.

This was in San Antonio, Texas. The student in the video trains at House of Jiujitsu Academy in downtown San Antonio. This man is Mark Gonzales.

It's a little concerning when a guy whose a grappler by hobby is having to instruct a peace officer whose daily work involves this regularly. It's got a lot of folks thinking. Should BJJ be mandatory for cops?

Some jiujitsu gyms sponsor cops for free classes. Some argue that if cops were more well trained it would result in less injury for officers and citizens. Maybe even might save a life! Fight.TV wants to know. What do you think? Should cops train jiujitsu?
