“I get to see my wife again thanks to what I learned from Derby City”

self defense, louisville, jiu jitsu, brazilian jiu jitsu

Tim, Age 30

I’ve been a correctional officer for Louisville Metro for years and we don’t carry weapons on the job. In the jail it’s just you and the inmates. Recently, my partner needed to extract a prisoner from his cell, which is a normal everyday thing, but when my partner opened the cell he was punched in the face by the inmate, knocking him completely unconscious. I knew I had to come to his rescue.

I ran over to save my partner and the inmate turned, ducked his head, and came running toward me – believe me, this is the kind of event correctional officers have nightmares about. My Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training kicked in. Without thinking, I grabbed the inside collar of his jump suit, positioned my hands as I was taught in class and began to choke him. The inmate went unconscious almost instantly. I honestly feel the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training from Derby City saved my life.
