Tupelo Jiu Jitsu Academy Partners with Adopt A Cop BJJ

Tupelo Jiu-Jitsu Academy partners with Adopt A Cop

Adopt a Cop

Adopt a Cop BJJ is a nonprofit, donation based program that allows active duty patrolling police officer’s around the country to train at any Adopt a Cop BJJ affiliated academy and we will pay 100% of the officer’s membership until they reach the rank of Blue belt. Blue belt is the second ranked belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and on average it takes around 12 to 18 months to obtain.

Most individuals with a blue belt level of knowledge have an immense advantage in controlling a combative situation over someone who has no knowledge or experience in grappling regardless of size or strength.

“Jiu Jitsu is the best tool for law enforcement. Officers get complacent and rely on lethal weapons too often. The techniques you learn in Jiu Jitsu can save your life and the suspects. Jiu-Jitsu has been a huge confidence booster, it has also helped me stay physically fit, it’s the best of both worlds, you get in shape and you learn. There is no better self defense mechanism.”

“BJJ in Law Enforcement is the most reliable tool you can have. Tasers, Pepper spray, or any other weapon is always prone to malfunction. Your training will be there when you need it the most. We subdue suspects daily, Jiu-Jitsu has given me the ability to control them without having to injure them.

 I’ve trained Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 2.5 years, I’ve used it numerous times on the job. I’ve used back control and full mount on suspects 60lbs larger than me, these techniques allowed me to safely place the suspects in handcuffs. BJJ has been extremely helpful in my experience and every officer should be training it.”

“If you are looking for a place to train I would highly recommend this school.”

Checked in to a morning class as an out of town B.B. student and was welcomed by the Instructor and class. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Cody is a great coach and a legit blackbelt. The other coaches were top notch too. If you are looking for a great place to train I would highly recommend this school.
