What is a Police Martial Art?
A "Police Martial Art" is a system of martial arts-based methods intended to be used by a person with lawful authority and justification to use force to arrest and restrain another person. A person who has a lawful obligation to "cause the peace to be kept."
Police Martial Arts Association International (PMAA)
The PMAA was founded in 1993. It is the first and largest international police martial arts organization. The association serves as a resource network for law enforcement and martial arts participants from 34 nations.
The Goal "One Purpose - One Standard"
The goal of the Police Martial Arts Instructor Accreditation Program is to introduce:
The Police Martial Arts Instructor Accreditation program was developed following a five year study involving instructional practices, training material, use-of-force policies, instructor qualification standards, academic resources, public and private training centers, and case studies.
"ORDO-IUSTE" The Latin phrase "Ordo-Iuste" is the ethical code of conduct for all Accredited Police Martial Arts Instructors. The phrase stands for "ORDER-JUSTLY." "Ordo-Iuste" is the guiding philosophy of the Police Martial Arts Instructor Accreditation Program.
Who should judge what meets the standard of "ORDO-IUSTE?"
Who should judge what best meets the standard of Order-Justly? We feel that the community should decide. There should be no arrest method which could not be witnessed by the community.
