Article from Jon Gilson at “Again Faster”:
“. . .In Patrol you go from zero to 60. You’re out talking to somebody and the next thing you know it’s a foot pursuit and you’re going over fences and then you’re getting in a fist fight. That exact scenario happened to me prior to me leaving there one day. That was really a changing life for me was getting into a fight with a guy that I chased for a long time, getting stuck in a backyard with him and just being in a literal toe-to-toe fist fight for about a minute and a half straight until the first units got there. . .
. . .Win or lose law enforcement combat in public, itâ€™s not go home as the loser. It’s you don’t go home. And that right there, with him latched onto my gun, grabbing for my gun in that backyard and me doing all I could to fight this guy off and keep myself safe was the catalyst for me to go, “Okay, this is not the right way to train. There’s got to be a better way. I know it’s out there somewhere. Now what do I do?” . . .”
