    Here is a photo of officer Derek Chauvin receiving martial arts training from master Gin Foon mark in 1995. No doubt this is where officer Chauvin learned the dangerous technique that he used in the murder of George Floyd.

    No doubt? Nonsense.

    What he did is/was common among police training. I believe it is being or has been phased out in many places.

    That kid is former officer Cauvin? Where did that picture come from???

    BTW I'm not an LEO or Security professional, but IMO too much attention is being paid to Chauvin pinning George Floyd's neck with his knee. Not a great idea, but I can see how, when subduing somebody, you might momentarily pin them down with your knee until you can cuff them. Heck when I was growing up, my big brothers and his friends did far worse to me...

    What they didn't do was crush my neck for 8 and-a-half minutes while I was begging for air and watch me go limp and die. That is just horrifyingly wrong. :cool:

    Any LEOs on here care to share some thoughts?

    Given that I (and at least Flying Crane) see no basis to the martial arts connection advanced in the first post, I submit that this thread has no useful purpose and should be deleted.

    I would say it is common but not specifically common in police training. What is your evidence of such a statement?
    It is wrong of you to put things like this out there to plant seeds and expect people to run with them.
