When a martial arts trainer was asked to teach basic restraint moves to elementary school teachers, he chose our client to demonstrate a basic restraint move. Rather than slowly demonstrating the move, the instructor flipped the 40-year-old woman over his hip landing her on the ground without any warning and injuring her back. Ultimately our client’s injuries required surgery. Martial arts instructors must know their limits; here he chose to go beyond those limits and we held him accountable. The case was handled by Managing Attorney David Akerib and Trial Partner Ron Rosenkranz.
