All employees of the Counter Terrorism Center (TEK) must take a compulsory ju-jitsu, and Mixed Martial Arts exam twice a year said Director General of TEK János Hajdu in M1TV Wednesday morning show.
The director said they adopted Japanese ju-jitsu and K1 rules-based full contact fighting. From these two they developed the so-called TEK-specific fighting style, in which special police action techniques are combine with hand to hand combat.
It often happens that mentally deranged people abuse rescue workers and ambulance attendants and even attack operational units. TEK employers most of the time try to avoid the use of arms, in this case they need to deploy close combat techniques - the director explained.
The TEK Director-General talked about these developments while welcoming Mixed Martial Artist Royce Gracie in Budapest who held a training session for TEK employees.
