Police in Sao Paulo have adopted a new technique for dealing with anti-World Cup street protests by deploying officers trained in jiu jitsu, the Brazilian martial art.

Yeah Jiu Jitsu would not be my first line of defense in crowd control. Seem like a great way to get a an officer stomped out. They reference the French well French forces are taught Krav Maga not Jits.

100% agree

Krav Maga is the way to go in these situations. Ground game against a crowd when the ground is concrete, covered in broken bottles and god knows what else. Ridiculous.
