Broward County Sheriff’s Department Seminar with Grandmaster Marchetti

In blog, featured by Sensei Ken

Grandmaster Marchetti has always taken a special interest in sharing his knowledge with those who serve and protect our nation. This has manifested in many ways throughout his personal career and extended to his work as the head of the Police Tactics Instructors of America International. It was a pleasure when recently he had the opportunity to spend a evening training officers from the Broward County Sheriff’s Department as well as other students of his good friend, Officer and Grandmaster Joe Williams.

By all accounts it was a great evening for everyone that included education, training and the camaraderie to be found in the martial arts. Grandmaster Marchetti also took the time to sign books and cards after the class.

Note: At the bottom of this post you will find our usual image gallery but I would like to call your attention to the following sections when the camera caught the action in sequence.

Choke Response
