    How do you rate experience? Before verbal judo was actually an offical term, before we were allowed to carry OC and tazers, this is what we learned to do best. Without your wits, you were stuck. Using good verbal skills, you can disarm/talk down most bad situations before they get worse. I have yet to use my taser, and have only had to use the OC for those odd individuals who wanted to fight reguardless ...

    Just an opinion....but "verbal Judo" was a way for someone to get money, credit, or kudos for coining a phrase to describe something that we had been doing for years.

    This is a great training aid. It helps me conduct better interviews that ultimately lead to better cases. Highly recommended for anyone deals with the public such as Police, fore and EMS.

    It helps the youngens to use their mouth and brain, something we old timers do by instinct, grappling and the like just doesn't hold the same thrill these days. :-]

    Has only failed me a few times...mostly when I try it on my wife and she knows what I am doing. I saw something on a TV show a while back called "wifeaway" That seems to work better for me.

    This is a great training tool as an FTO. It provides a structured, tactical traffic stop and interview process for confronting people on the street. It articulates your use of force and even helps avoid it. Woosha!

    I'm rather proud of the fact that in Nine years on the job in both Corrections and Law Enforcement I can count on one hand the times I've had to wrestle and fight with a subject. I credit this sucess to the verbal skills I learned to develop after be instructed in Verbal Judo. This training and the skills it allowed me to use may be nothing new, but without the organized presentation and the manner in which it was presented I would have had to learn these lessons the hard way.

    Behind closed doors we call it "Gerbil Voodoo." Like many others have already stated, it's just an "official" phrase, and now mandatory course, for something we already did on the streets.

    It was an okay class if the instructor I had would have not added his own touches to it and stuck with the original book it would have been a whole lot better. I just took this training about a month ago.

    I hated it!!! It was one of the worst classes I have ever been sent to. The class might have been useful but the Officer teaching it started the class by informing us that the only reason he became a Officer was to prove that his friend who was "unjustly killed" by a cop could have been saved…. if only that cop only had a class like this, he might not have “had to shoot his poor innocent (ARMED) friend”. Unfortunately some time thereafter he stated to drone....

    This stuff works. I had this course a while back and no sooner than I got home, I got pulled over by a state trooper who used it. I can't believe it, even being trained in Verbal Judo, when it was used on me it still worked. A must for everybody.

    Verbal Judo teaches you how to become the Professional Contact Officer and how to get voluntary compliance. Its also helps if you built like a "Tank"

    Great skill for every LEO that can take years to master for those that don't understand the concept. Few realize that doing what we do is many times how we talk and interact with people than getting physical or using the tools we have at our disposal. They only down side is for those that are too confident in Verbal Judo and aren't prepared for the haymaker punch that they can't talk their way out of
