I am in my final week of academy at the dept of corrections. We only had a 3 hour course on pressure points, and they showed us a couple of fighting manuvers. I will be working in max security cell-houses, as the corrections officer 1. They run to any alarms, and the sergeants stay in the cell houses.
I may or may not fight frequently, but I will have to fight, mabybe only a couple times a month, maybe a couple times a day, depending on how many alarms there are. In kansas, we don’t have mace or nightsticks. The riot squad has mace, but regular officers like me will be the ones to respond first.
I know how to hit people, but I was wondering if someone could recommend the best martial art to learn to break up a fight, and what the best martial art for fighting multiple attackers would be. I have considered just taking boxing lessons, but I am not sure if there would be a better tool to learn.
