Man uses martial arts to thwart attempted kidnapping in NYC park

A good Samaritan used martial arts to stop an attempted kidnapping at Madison Square Park this month.

Brian Kemsley, 33, was in the right place at the right time to interfere in the crime around 3 p.m. Nov. 9.

“I saw this man playing tug of war with a baby stroller, telling everyone it was his baby,” Kemsley said.

He was in the park with his girlfriend and stood back as others tried to pry the man from the stroller.

    This was. Media stunt to allow for a fascist civilian police force to benefit billionaires and keep workers in line

  10. Truelove on September 3, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    That’s WHY we train.

  11. SmileGamez on September 3, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Imagine if he wasn’t lying and it really was his kid and stroller and she got away with it

  12. Dany Balagula on September 3, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Who try an kidnap strangers to me are automatically serial killers. They should NOT be allowed to live. If the government doesn’t want to dispose of them maybe its time people do, no questions asked. Just choke all of them to death and say it was an accident. For GODS SAKE!

  13. Becker McBlue on September 3, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    I see that others did greater job in subduing the mentally disturbed man. You did not mention them at all.

  14. Janice Monk on September 3, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    He’s a hero

  15. Deus ex vesania on September 3, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    The lunatic wanted a baby but all he really needed was a hug. A very strong hug.
    Such a heartwarming story!

  16. Bag of Beans on September 3, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    He just wanted to give hugs

  17. Alvin Davis on September 3, 2021 at 10:58 pm

  19. plznz444 on September 3, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    They will start to call this rape within a few years and then self defense will be over

  25. 🐉 Tactical Trucker™️ on September 3, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    The upbeat profit philly develop because alloy prenatally bow toward a petite competitor. combative, merciful trail

  29. quinnjim on September 3, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    When cops "de-escalate" with a choke hold, they get in trouble. This guy proved that it is a VERY useful technique.

  30. HARD LOOK on September 3, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    X straight X edge X

  31. General Balage on September 3, 2021 at 11:15 pm

  32. Butter Bean on September 3, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    What a dude!!

  33. Ben Vincent on September 3, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Now we need to do the hard thing and try and understand why that man is mentally ill and sympathize with him. Our society is sick.

  34. Junnel Pepito on September 3, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    How was he so sure who’s baby it was?

  35. Linda Daniel on September 3, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    I think grace and humanity is OUT THE WINDOW when the person is trying to steal a CHILD. Come on with the FEELING’S BS!

  36. rEYEn illumanati on September 3, 2021 at 11:21 pm

  37. kefied on September 3, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    He crossed his feet. Reap those ankles! He’s no expert. Anybody in BJJ knows that’s a white belt mistake

  38. ziggy morris on September 3, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    Guy looks very familiar

  39. Roro Calixto on September 3, 2021 at 11:24 pm

  40. Lisa Schmidman on September 3, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Makes me have faith in humanity again

  41. ALT Rag3 on September 3, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Didn’t seem like he was there to do the important part and just hold him when he was a pro fighter.

  42. Gladson Abraham on September 3, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Technically you’re not supposed to cross your legs when you take the back like that, but the kidnapper probably doesn’t know the defense to it so eh

  43. LegendaryKing on September 3, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    In California the good Samaritan would get arrested and sued

  44. othman shah on September 3, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    SORY IM NOT YOUR PLAY GROUND .

  45. Carolina Rodriguez on September 3, 2021 at 11:31 pm
