Honor

Honor

This is a difficult word to define.  The dictionary definition is not the one for which we search. 

Honor is not something you define or learn from books; it is not something you will receive a Certificate for having; it is not a code of ethics. It just is.

Honor is something you live day by day.  It is with you even when you are alone.

Needless to say, when you give your word ...

WHAT IS TERRORISM?

WHAT IS TERRORISM?

“Terrorism” is not a simple term to define.  Too often we think of the terrorist as a dark skinned Arab with a blood lust in his eye, ranting unintelligible words and waving an automatic weapon around while he pushes some sweet old man out of an airplane door.  The movies and television have almost stereotyped the terrorist; it has been done to such a degree that the term has become trite.  And the trite concept of the terrorist ...

The Dynamics Of Terror

Although terrorists and their brothers around the world are a feared sight, they hide behind the coward’s desire for anonymity, and the mask has become their badge and hide behind the cover of numerous groups advocating  terrorism.   They are a travesty and use their “causes” to prove their warrior-hood.   A true warrior doesn’t shoot from out of the dark, hide behind his mother’s bedsheet or pretend that ignorance and bravado can justify their claim to supremacy.

TERRORIST ASSASSINATION

Terrorist assassination is a special kind of homicide because there is a target figure and the victim is usually a political victim not an emotional one as in most cases of homicide.  The victim is targeted to broadcast a message.  This means that people are assassinated because of who they are and for no other reason.  Usually the victim is part of a government or large corporation whom the terrorist is attempting to influence.  It is a power ...

Seeking Employment

The Bodyguard profession does not have a “guarantee bench;” it does not have anyone to shout “Next.”  If a novice believes this is the way it works they have an unrealistic concept of life. If the novice feels that success comes to anyone and it’s a matter of waiting for whose turn it is.

 When a beginner trains he should be aware that he is learning the necessary theory; and we hope, in the awareness that is ...

Bodyguard Protocol

Bodyguard Protocol

PROTOCOL is important in even simpler day to day things:  the manner in which you dress, the ease with which you enter a five star hotel, the social skills you possess.  It becomes protocol when an individual or institution sets out rules of conduct.  These rules are not necessarily written into a “Rule Book.”  Protocol can be an indefinable thing that is set by the type of people you are around.  That is, conforming to a particular groups social expectations, ...

Non-Confrontation

A bodyguard’s principal purpose is to safeguard the client’s life and serve in such a manner as to ensure comfort, ease and privacy.  The professional also understands he may also be saving your client from bad publicity.  Most high profile clients do not want “bad press.”  They want low profile protection and usually do not advertise that they have a bodyguard included as part of their entourage. To many novices believe that to escape a conflict through the use ...

During the Viet Nam War Psychologists ...

SRT Synergy

If you know the definition of a term it is much easier to understand the concept it defines.  “Synergy” is an important term when considered in relation to the SRT.

When the assets of a Special response team are totaled, the sum is greater than the assets of each individual considered separately.  In short the team in its totality is greater than each member acting independently.  Synergy is present in many areas.  A flock of geese winging ...

The Misconceptions

The Misconceptions

When the average person thinks of a “bodyguard,” too often they picture a stereotype that needs to be changed. The typical misconception pictures a bodyguard as a large, wrestler type with killer written across his forehead, and who frightens everyone in his path. The next picture that flashes across the mind is the gunslinger with a .44 magnum tucked under his arm ready to take arms against an entire army of villains.

Finally, the Karate barehanded killer ...
