Police officer shows how skills and fitness prevent injuries during arrest

This police officer demonstrates how fighting skills – grappling skills in particular – and physical strength and fitness translate to less harm for both suspects and officers in the real world.

The officer uses a body lock lift and takes him to the ground carefully, without slamming the head, then applies pressure and controls the suspect on the ground before applying handcuffs.

Note that the officer kneels on the head area for a moment during cuffing – this does not cause any harm to the suspect as no pressure is applied to the neck, and it is used for only a short time in transition.

The suspect does not appear to have any injuries, and does not appear to be suffering any pain or discomfort when he stands up.

No pepper spray, no batons, no Taser, no strikes, no gun.
