The goal of the article is to discuss the pressing concern and to improve the quality of physical training of future law enforcement and police officers. Statistics show a significant increase in the rate of attacks, including gunmen and criminal attacks, on law enforcement agencies. Moreover, police officers and other Special Forces units should have the perfect fighting combat manoeuvres and skills to protect themselves from silent and automatic weapons to have a successful response to armed criminals. Some studies show that the alert level of a significant portion of law enforcement officers who are ready for the efficient use of fighting combat manoeuvres is not sufficiently high. The fighting combat manoeuvres include submission hold, submission lock, grabs and throws. In addition, significant weaknesses of the current teaching methods of fighting combat manoeuvres of future police officers are revealed. Furthermore, there are disadvantages of the functional teaching methods of the fighting combat manoeuvres, submission hold and submission lock, of future police officers. Unfortunately, the disadvantages are the significant prevalence of studying striking techniques not takedowns (submission hold and submission lock) during the training of cadets and a substantial lack of time devoted to studying the techniques of effective actions by police officers during the ground fight. © JPES.
