Here's a textbook takedown of a riot cop. Go in low, you can take the baton hits on your back. Don't stop them with your arm. When you're low, most of the momentum of the baton has been lost. You have to move with some confidence and quickly. Once they're on the ground, they're helpless. All that riot gear makes it difficult to maneuver around. Then you can use ziptie to completely incapacitate them. These are people using military gear without the training. Think of it that way and they become way less dangerous. Remember to keep your posture upright, or else you might land face-first if they shove you on the back. #OurCheats
