SELF-DEFENSE: Life-saving skills on display

 HILLVIEW — There’s no re-dos in real life. When faced in a dangerous situation, there is often only one opportunity to get free. That’s where knowing what moves to rely on comes in handy.

To Louisville Metro Police Officer Allan Manganello, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu offers the best options.

“As an officer, I wanted to know techniques that were sure-fire ways to help me and my partner,” he said.

Having studied martial arts growing up, Manganello began studying Gracie Jiu-Jitsu 25 years ago.
