The Koga System will live on

Logo_SmlAs you know, we recently lost Robert Koga, founder of the Koga Institute and developer of the Koga System of law enforcement principles, practices and training. The intent of this letter is to assure each and every one of you that the Koga System did not die with Robert Koga. Instead, it will continue to grow and flourish.

The fundamental goal of law enforcement is to serve and protect the citizen – to uphold the laws of the land, and to deal with those who break them in a manner that minimizes harm, and that ensures that officers return safely home to their families each and every night. This goal was so important to Robert Koga that he made it his life’s work to share his knowledge and methods with thousands of law enforcement personnel across the country and around the world – just because he believed it was “the right thing to do.”

The teachings that he and his instructors have delivered have already saved countless lives over the years. In order to assure that current and future generations of law enforcement personnel continue to receive the benefits offered by the Koga System, before his death Robert named a core group of senior instructors to carry on his life’s work.

We, his team of instructors and the Koga Institute leadership team, share Robert’s belief that equipping officers with the knowledge and skills that will help them return safely home each night is “the right thing to do.” This means that classes will continue to be conducted. Students will continue to be trained and instructors will continue to be certified. Additional tools, such as new training videos will be developed and shared for the benefit of all. We will share information with all of you about these ongoing activities through the Koga Institute web site (www.kogainstitute.org ), Facebook (see “Koga Institute”), and Twitter (@KogaInstitute).

The Koga System will live on.

February 15, 1930 – September 8, 2013

On Saturday, November 2, 2013, over 300 members of law enforcement, family and friends came to the Ontario Convention Center to celebrate the life and honor the legacy of Robert K. Koga.

Koga Sensei was a humble but remarkable man. He was “bigger than life.” No one can possibly quantify how many law enforcement officers went home safely after an altercation, solely because of what we learned from Robert Koga.

There was absolutely no one that devoted as much of their life and made more personal sacrifices toward the development of safe and effective training for law enforcement. He taught for over 55 years and even at 83 years old was still teaching, six months prior to his death. Our profession is profoundly better for his contributions.

Rest in peace Sensei.
