About Verbal Judo Institute

Verbal Judo Institute is a tactical communication training course. The late Dr. George J. Thompson Ph.D. was the President and Founder of the Verbal Judo Institute until he passed in 2011.

He applied his diverse experience, including ten years as an English Professor and five years as a police officer, to create an internationally recognized training program in Tactical Communication.

The principles and tactics taught enable graduates to use "Presence and Words" to calm difficult people who may be under severe emotional or other influences, redirect the behavior of hostile people, diffuse potentially dangerous situations, perform professionally under all conditions, and achieve the desired outcome of the encounter.

Since 1981, The Verbal Judo Institute has provided Tactical Communication training for professionals in four continents in three languages. Over 1,000,000 graduates have become "Contact Professionals."
