Officer Jiu Jitsu Takedown Goes Viral

Police officers across the nation are put in dangerous situations on a daily basis. Yes, they are armed, but use of lethal force is unnecessary in most instances. Because of this, many train in martial arts in case they find themselves in a situation where they have to subdue a suspect without use of a weapon. This officer, reportedly a member of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, uses his jiu jitsu training to take down a suspect who was resisting arrest.

It starts out as a pretty calm interaction, but out of nowhere, the suspect starts running. The officer chases him down and uses his jiu jitsu training to get pin him to the ground. The officer uses his Taser, but the suspect continues to resist arrest. At last, backup arrives for the officer, and they’re able to take him into custody. But had he not had martial arts training, that incident might have ended up very differently.
