A US Marine was caught on camera brutally tackling two teenage boys to the ground in an effort to stop their fight while at their school.

The video, shot by a bystander, shows two unnamed students hitting and kicking each other on the grass at Edison High School in Stockton, California, on Wednesday, according to KCRA.

As they are fighting, a man wearing a black t-shirt and camouflage pants can be seen running straight for the kids from the left, before tackling them both the ground.

During the blindside tackle, the teen in a light-colored shirt is hit first, causing him to smash straight into the other boy in what appears to be a very painful, if not dangerous, collision.

The man, who has since been identified as US Marine Josue Valdez Sarmiento, then uses his body weight to push the two boys down into the ground, before pulling one of the boys up by his sweatshirt and then dropping him back down onto the grass.

Several teachers then head over to separate the boys and check to see if they are okay. Valdez Sarmiento, meanwhile, is joined by another unnamed Marine and they walk away as if nothing has happened.

The boy in the light-colored shirt appears to be unable to stand up and can be seen rolling around on the ground, while covering his face.

Valdez Sarmiento is said to be a former student at Edison High School and a private first class in the Marine Corps.

The US Marine Corps told KCRA that he was on campus that day to help with recruiting, but that he is not actually a recruiter.

U.S. Marine Maj. Thomas Driscoll told the news station that Valdez Sarmiento 'saw a dangerous fight break out. Upon observing that situation, he moved over and broke up the fight.'
