Guy tries to judo throw security guard – ends badly

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Working as a security guard can be a tough, thankless job for oftentimes very little pay. You often have to deal with very stressful, violent situations and aggressive people who have zero respect for yourself or your position.

Unlike the police who at least are armed, most security guards are completely unarmed which makes having a martial arts background imperative if you want to stay safe on the job.

In this video from Canton Province in China, we see one such stressful situation that security guards have to deal with – an aggressive man who causes trouble then even has the gall to attack the security guard by trying to judo throw him to the ground.

Had the troublemaker had his way or the skill to back up his boldness, he could have seriously injured the security guard by throwing him on the hard floor like that and he was just trying to do his job.

Instead, the security guard turns the tables on him and reverses the guy’s attempted throw. He ends up slamming the perpetrator on that hard floor, knocking him out cold – probably due to him hitting the back of his head on the ground.

I bet he won’t try that again.

While the YouTube video description says that these guys in the blue uniforms are actually policemen, not security guards and that this all took place at a police station (public service bureau), that is unlikely as neither man looks to have any sort of weapon on him or any kind of tool that police officers carry on their utility belt such as hand cuffs, pepper spray, taser, radio, etc.

Also, according to the same video description, which may or may not be factual, the judo throw the perpetrator attempted is called an O-Soto-Gari and the move which the officer countered with is called an O-Soto-O-Toshi, allegedly.
