TAG Muay Thai Founder & Head Instructor Chris Aboy has personally trained numerous law enforcement officers, special agents and U.S. military personnel. As a high-profile law enforcement officer for the federal government and a subject matter expert (SME) in hand-to-hand combat, Chris understands what today’s law enforcement officers need to protect themselves and the citizens in their communities safe.
Police and detective work can be physically demanding, stressful and dangerous. Police officers have one of the highest rates of injuries and illnesses of all occupations.
We all live in an unpredictable world with emotionally unstable people. Police officers and other protective services officers often put themselves in more dangerous situations than the average civilian due to the nature of the work they perform. The ability to protect and serve civilians confidently while maintaining self-protection is vital to public safety.
Law enforcement officers are constantly on high alert and must be prepared to take immediate action in the event of an emergency. Yet most officers don’t get regular practice in hand-to-hand combat, takedown techniques and other important maneuvers. At the request of several specialized law enforcement units within the federal government, Chris Aboy offers customized training to specialized units.
Because Chris has been a federal law enforcement officer himself since 2002, he knows firsthand the skills that federal law enforcement officers need and the scenario they can encounter at any moment. Chris has professionally instructed at a federal police academy for over 5 years of his career while running his own martial arts gym. That is his passion; it’s what he loves to do.
He has guided over 100 law enforcement recruit classes from start to finish, guiding thousands of officers as they strengthened their expertise in specific techniques, and confidence of performing on the job.
This is not a certification course, it’s an open dialogue training class addressing multiple options on handling one’s specific working environment. There is no perfect way to handle a problem, especially, with an evolving behavior of the “bad guy”, our tactics need to change to stay ahead to be safe, effective and reasonable.
The tailored training that Chris provides to specialized units helps officers do the following:
Simple defenses and counters that expose the officer to the least amount of risk for injury are critical to effective law enforcement training. Kru Chris uses brutal striking methods from Muay Thai combined with control and grappling techniques from wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Police officers, correctional facilities officers and other protective services officials learn how to gain and retain physical control quickly with simple tactics that are easy to remember. No one has the time to execute an entire combination sequence when lives are at stake.
Self-defense workshops for law enforcement can be tailored to the unit and its goals. Below are common workshop objectives:
