Police departments around the world have utilized the techniques of Jiu-jitsu in their training for many centuries. When the feudal system was abolished in Japan, Jiu-Jitsu became the official hand to hand combat system taught to the Japanese Imperial Guard. Currently, Japanese police still utilizes jiu-jitsu in their training programs. In Brazil, Grand Master Helio Gracie was requested to design a training curriculum for the Brazilian police and military. He personally participated in the training of many of those units.
At Valente Brothers we are extremely proud of our long lasting relationship with the law enforcement community in Florida. Since 1995 we have been working with officers from virtually every police department in the state. Additionally, we have instructed dozens of law enforcement specific seminars at various departments. In order to make Jiu Jitsu more available to all officers, the Miami-Dade Police Department is offering the Valente Brothers Fundamentals Program (F27) at the Miami-Dade Public Safety Training Institute. This is a recognition by the Police Survival Unit of the street effectiveness of our curriculum. The classes are coordinated by Valente Brothers Instructors and taught by Officer Victor Gatell (954-663-0405) email; firstname.lastname@example.org.
