May 12, 2016

Major Respect to Officer Brennan and Officer Hays

BOTH Police Officers involved in the 2015 McDonald's Taser incident accepted the offer to attend the Level 1 GST (Gracie Survival Tactics) law enforcement course with Rener Gracie in Maryland. In this video, they describe the McDonald's incident in their own words, and then they share their thoughts regarding the application of jiu-jitsu in law enforcement! Please SHARE - Police officers must see this to understand the importance of better training!

Back Story
On September 5, 2015, police officers Tom Brannan and Larry Hayes encountered an aggressive man on PCP at a McDonalds in Riverdale Park, MD. After several unsuccessful uses of the Taser, ASP batton, and pepper spray, backup arrived and the officers were finally able to control the subject. Rener Gracie did a detailed narrated breakdown of the incident and invited the officers involved to attend the GST course free of charge. Click here to watch the original breakdown.
