Application of the shin to the calf

This video is for verified Law enforcement Officers only.

In this video tactical tip, PoliceOne Contributor Don Gulla — founder of Arrestling Force Options Training — discusses and demonstrates a way to get a prone subject’s hands out from under his torso by applying one office’s shin to the lower calf of the suspect. This hits a pressure point that causes enough pain that the subject will free his or her hands from under the body, allowing a partner officer to gain control of them.
