Once I told a felon (or even someone who had committed a serious misdemeanor) that they were under arrest, it was an absolute certainty that they were going to jail (or the hospital, or the cemetery) their choice. The vast majority could tell what was going to happen and chose jail. The other few? Well......... I took them all down one way or another and I never got injured and none ever got away.

Ahhhh, the "good old days" when the law protected the "good guys", prosecuted the "bad guys", and police were encouraged to do whatever it took to take dangerous criminals off the streets!
I USED to carry one of the smaller springy saps to get the attentions of individuals when needed, but some of the guys carried those horse uhhhh appendage ones as we used to call them. I saw a number of broken bones on people as a result of injudicious application to the wrong body parts. They were devastating.
THEN
because of complaints the city said no more saps.. which strangely enough resulted in more folks being arrested being injured because it required more night stick application than the shock of a good shot with a sap could provide. THey even sent everyone to stick school to teach the LAMB BATON METHOD which was striking only knees and elbows and BOY did that NEVER WORK!!!!

I usually just took fighters down using hands on techniques I had learned very early in life.

Elbows were banned from an MMA league called Pride back in early 2000's. Why? Because an elbow is dangerous. When i trained (like 2 years) in TKD, elbows were used when Jamming (staying in close so your opponent cant get a got shot) someone. Worked well. I could hang with black and brown belts pretty well as an orange.

Bas Rutten is one of the amazing pioneers of MMA. He fought in the Pancrase circuit which didn't allow closed fist strikes to the head at the time so he got really good at using the palm heel.

Now Pancrase is a regular MMA promotion and probably the 2nd-largest Asian MMA promotion behind One Championship.

As far as elbows & MMA, most states ban them at the amateur level but allow them in the pros.
