    So i moved to another company doing loss prevention. We pretty much catch shoplifters and shit like that. The company I use to work for was "hands OFF" which is fucking gay because people knew that and just took what they wanted and left.

    The company i work for now is "Hands ON", so im excited about what might go down. I am very proficient at striking with two years of boxing under my belt but i dont want to have to rely on striking alone. I would rather learn some arm locks and things like that. The company will be training me with this stuff but i want to get a jump on it.

    What are some effective submissions i can use to disable a hostile shoplifter.

    I wanted to take a wrestling class at the local city college but i just found out they dont offer one, they only have a team. You guys think that i should just ask the coach if i could train with them even though i dont know shit about wrestling?

    CLIFFS: Working LP, need to know some subs. Store is know for hostile shoplifters.

    might as well ask the wrestling coach, worst he says is "no". otherwise i'd look around for a self defense school that will focus on immediate results rather than something like bjj where there's a bit longer wait on complete results. if this is a long term investment you might want to find a submission wrestling style school (whether it's bjj or no gi/mma or whatever) and go train there.

    Thanks man.

    Im planning on using this job as a stepping stone into a career in Law enforcement.

    Im sure learning some grappling skills would be a great investment for myself.
    Im definitely gonna check out that book you recommended. :bigthumb:

    Just pull a flying arm bar on the first teenage shoplifter you see and snap that shit. Word will spread of a super badass security guy and nobody will steal shit again.

    I thought this was more of a striking art.

    Wrist locks are real good for controlling people.

    Im not looking to hurt people, thats why i dont want to use my striking skills. I just want to be able to control hostile people when i need to.

    I used to bounce when I was back at university and we used to do a few throws and take downs we always had 3-4 people minimum so once they are on the ground it was only a few seconds before you had backup. Wrist/joint locks are good for controlling people the odd choke hold but this was for drunk people fighting I doubt youd need such extremes.

    I think judo or wrestling would be the way to go here. Put the guy on the ground and hold on to him till help shows up and you can cuff him. That way you have less risk of breaking some of their bones. Plus you're not gonna grab the wrist of a guy who's doing a full sprint past you for the door with his arms wrapped around a PS3. Once you get him to the ground a kimura, rnc, or just holding on to his hips should do the trick.
