The footage shows a drunken man punching a police officer in the face, causing him to wobble for a bit and backing away.
However as soon as the second punch flew towards him, the officer demonstrated his professional judo skills by quickly tripping the drunk man and flipping him over, pinning him down on the ground with the weight of his broad shoulders.
Seeing this, a pedestrian walked over to help the officer.
Netizens commented, "I think the officer learned the 'throwing down' judo technique", "What a relief...that...was, that's what happens when you hurl your fists at anybody," "Did he break anything and possibly faint?", "That was so cool."
Not only that, it appeared the officer learned the special move the proper way by going so far as to protect the civilian's head by wrapping his arm around the head area for support.
The clip has gone viral exceeding 230,000 views and counting. You can view a repost of the video on Instagram by user sinks0321 below.
