Be your own bodyguard
The idea of being your own bodyguard comes from the need for enhanced personal security without having to pay for a full time bodyguard or professional security operative.
Through years of operational experience and experience of in-depth planning and preparations, our instructor team has come to realise that the primary difference between the average person on the street and the professional bodyguard, is not necessarily the skills they possess, but the way that they think and the mindset that they cultivate.
Be your own bodyguard is the foundation course used by hard target international in order to teach the security conscious civilian how to think, act and be as aware as today’s modern bodyguards.
This is not a self defence/ martial arts type course or a tactical shooting programme. Our goal as instructors is to teach you how to look after yourself and friends or family with the same level of situational and tactical awareness as a well trained and fully operational security professionals around the world.
We have been asked a number of times ‘can you really train me to be a bodyguard in two days?’ and the answer is no, of course not. But, what we can do is teach you to think like one. Therefore making you harder to attack, becoming what we would call a hard target.
We have a number of different courses available, ranging from our foundation course known as the ‘be your own bodyguard’, right through to a full two week close/executive protection course where you will learn all of the skills necessary to achieve a B-Tech level three qualification in close protection (become a certified bodyguard).
Hard Target Training
It seems that almost every day we hear about another mass shooting or terrorist attack somewhere in the world.
People are getting nervous and less reluctant to travel; they are letting the criminal predators win, and living a life of fear, hiding from their potential.
As a professional body guard I get asked all the time what I would do in situation that are reported on the news.
The simple answer is “I would not be in that situation. As a bodyguard, my job is to plan and prepare properly to avoid those dangers and risks.”
In these times of uncertainty most people would love the idea of having a body guard or security professional with them while they go about their daily lives. But who can afford to have a full-time bodyguard?
The simple answer is only the privileged few.
But what if there was a way to gain the mindset and skills used by bodyguards all over the world.
What if I knew how to not only survive conflict, but avoid it altogether?
What if I knew how to spot dangerous situations before they develop?
What if I knew how to avoid attracting attention from criminal predators or make myself unattractive to them as a target?
What if I could send my kids off to college or university confident that they knew how to stay safe, not only from criminals but also from sexual predators?
What if I could reduce the liability to my business by teaching these skills to my employers or co-workers?
In other words, what if I could BECOME MY OWN BODYGUARD???
