Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Winder Barrow Adults Teens

Winder, GA – Local martial arts school, Master Pattillo Martial Arts, is one of the nation’s newest Adopt-a-Cop BJJ affiliates.

All over the country, police departments are seeing the positive benefits of police officers being trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (or, BJJ).

Marietta Police Department recently released statistics demonstrating the value of officer training.

  • 23% reduction in Taser deployments in the BJJ officer group
  • 48% reduction in officer injuries department wide.
    • None of the injured officers were BJJ officers.
  • 48% reduction in officer injuries department wide. 
    • None of the injured officers were BJJ officers. 
  • Serious injuries to a suspect are 53% less likely when interacting with BJJ officers.
  • BJJ officers are 59% less likely to engage in UOF than non-BJJ officers.

The Adopt-a-Cop BJJ Mission states,

To address critical gaps in the department-funded training of front line police officers by partnering with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gyms across the country to provide free or reduced rate memberships to police officers.  Officers are sponsored until they achieve the rank of blue belt, which typically takes 12-18 months.

Police officers often find themselves in volatile situations which can quickly turn deadly. In these combative situations, being the more skilled grappler allows the officer a greater amount of control over the situation, which decreases the likelihood of injury or death for both officer and suspect.

Being a police officer is one of the most selfless, dangerous, and important jobs in our world today.  Investing in our officers is an investment in our communities.  Adopt A Cop BJJ aims to create a more resilient and more effective police force, improve police relations around our country, and ultimately reduce the incidence of police-involved shootings and deaths.

“It’s extremely important to me that our martial arts studio creates a significant, positive impact on our community. One way we can do that is to make sure our police officers who want to train in self-defense focused martial arts can.”

Master Pattillo Martial Arts offers classes in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, a style made famous by the Ultimate Fighting Championship founded by Rorion Gracie. The UFC was created to showcase the effectiveness of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is now practiced worldwide and is often referred to as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Winder – Team Pedro Sauer at Master Pattillo Martial Arts already has a number of members in law enforcement.

“Having worked primarily with kids for over 20 years, it was a population I didn’t expect to focus on. But getting to train with these men and women, I’ve gotten to know some of the challenges they face. Knowing the value of the martial arts and the effectiveness of Jiu-Jitsu – Adopt-a-Cop seemed like a great way for our studio to give back.”
