The way police officers react to calls has been questioned during recent police-involved shootings, not only in Chicago, but across the country. Now a martial arts training center in Evanston is teaching officers to make arrests without using deadly force.

Using your hands and body as a weapon is one of the key lessons of the Krav Maga seminar at Tier One Training Center in Evanston. Krava Maga is an Israeli self-defense technique considered one of the most efficient street-fighting systems in the world.
“It is a self-defense system that was originally developed actually before the founding of the state of Israel. It was developed for civilians to learn how to protect themselves very quickly,” Tier One owner Arpun Nagaraj said.
