    Chris Grosz was an Arnis and JuJutsu student of mine in the late 90’s and early to mid-2000’s. While he was a student, he was in many ways one of my best teachers too. His dedication to improving the tactics used by his fellow law enforcement officers is commendable. I’m glad his efforts continue to be referenced many years since his tragic passing. He was a great person. Thank you Michael Janich for continuing his legacy with your own!
