“Body For Hire: The Full Bodyguard Training Collection” by Hawk East, Inc. is a video clip as well as message program on the basics of executive defense. The teachers Tom Carter, Jr., Roger Hair, Rick Reynolds, Dave Bartram, and also Expense Thompson all have a riches of understanding and also they share a fair bit in this program. For the individual that would like to know more about the field of exec defense, this would be a good location to start. For somebody who took a program from Hawk East, this is a great refresher to have. I also wish to state first that I such as that Roger Hair put a commitment in memory of Tom Carter, Jr. in the event. I knew with Carter’s work and also keep in mind when he was eliminated in Iraq in 2004. I respect him, his knowledge, as well as his service to our country.
The initial part of this review will concentrate on the three-volume DVD collection. I’ll mention a few of my grievances pertaining to these DVDs initially, and afterwards hop on to what I suched as about them, and also there is a lot more great than adverse, as well as the adverse as you’ll see is all about the manufacturing worths not content.
These DVDs were first tape-recorded on VHS and after that transferred to DVD. A lot of us that watch DVDs are accustomed to fancy menu web pages, being able to miss to specific components of the program, and so forth. You don’t get that with this program, which is my greatest grievance. There is a lots of information here, and also it would certainly be more user friendly if you had a food selection and could miss appropriate to the topic you intend to watch. So even though they are DVDs, it is like watching a VHS tape without any menus, scene selection, etc.
Sufficient with that said, you understand. Currently on the excellent, and also there’s a great deal. The teachers do a great job of presenting a lot of information for those who desire to learn about exec security. They present well as well as the sound and photo is clear. Most important, other than some devices that could be obsoleted, the info they present is sound as well as important. I’ll now experience the 3 quantities individually with what they contain.
The first disc, volume 1, is virtually totally in the classroom. The only section of this quantity not in the classroom is a short section with Rick Reynolds outside looking a vehicle. Keeping that claimed, they did a great task of filming and also editing the class product with various sights of the speakers and cut-aways to the pupils so you were not simply checking out the very same scene after that entire time. Now to the good things, the materials of the class guideline.
Roger Hair, Tom Carter Jr. and Rick Reynolds are all extremely educated on the topic and also they resolve lots of myths about the executive security area with their training. They are not there to create knuckle dragging bone crushers, however instead educated, express, determined experts that want to tackle the obligation of keeping clients safe. I like that they point out that 90% of the work is advance job as well as keeping clients far from hazards.
This is a fundamental program, but as Carter says, “Essentials are essential.” During the tools selection part, things such as how you clothe, weapons, holsters, body shield, brief-cases, and sunglasses are reviewed. A few of the gear as well as equipment gone over in this program may be outdated. To dismiss the series as a result of this would be foolhardy, because the reasons behind the devices are still valuable to know. Standard terms is reviewed. Again, this is a fundamental course and also some people will certainly not be familiar with these terms, so I rejoice they were consisted of.
Customer assessments and sorts of safety are looked at. This quantity additionally includes a section on searching for bombs with ways to look consistent and also thorough. Protective developments as well as preparation are reviewed. Points such as group placement and also principles when under attack are educated. The instructors review motorcade security as well as vehicle drivers.
I actually like that the instructors explain that much of security work is not glamorous. It’s not all Hollywood action.
The second disc, Volume 2, relocates outside with Dave Bartram advising a class on guns educating at the range. He educates standard gun concepts, including Weaver stance, target option, making use of sights, capturing on the move, and also weapon retention. With all of these, you can not come to be proficient by simply watching the DVD. You need to venture out as well as technique. Ideally with a teacher, and after that make use of the DVD as refresher material for your ongoing training. There is likewise an area on auto glass ballistics that I liked. Good details if you ever before need to shoot at or from an automobile. The firearms training occupies regarding the initial hour of the DVD.
The program after that proceeds with vehicle operations and covers things such as automobile pre-flights, lorry option, as well as evasive driving. They show diagrams of vehicles doing L Turns, J Turns, and also Reverse 180s, in addition to revealing real vehicles doing them, and inside views of the motorists putting the vehicles with these techniques. Once more, you will not be proficient by simply enjoying, you require to have a safe place to practice these. If you can attend a school, that is best, as well as utilize this as review material. Otherwise, do what they instruct in a safe place as well as find out these prior to you ever before need them genuine. They additionally cover ramming strategies and also removing distances.
The last brief area is back in the classroom where they demonstrate how to remove the principle from danger as well as discuss non-verbal alerts that can set up with your customer.
Disc 3, Volume 3 of the collection, starts with security chauffeur Expense Thompson demonstrating as well as walking you with a vehicle bomb search. It’s a 26 minute section that helps you comprehend what to look for and also where when looking automobiles for eruptive gadgets.
Next Off, Roger Hair goes over standard dining decorum. If you recognize with dining at fancy areas, you might understand this. Nonetheless, if your eating experiences are convenience food places, you will certainly intend to beware and also discover what is shown below prior to you attend a fancy dish with a client.
Expense Thompson returns to discuss communication tools. He discusses a lot of information, several of which could be dated due to the advances in equipment. Regardless, he raises some really crucial factors you ought to take into consideration when choosing equipment that is offered today.
The last section is a lecture by Tom Carter in front of a platform with a black history. Carter is not the most energised or animated audio speaker, as well as he does make use of notes, but he also passes on a riches of info. It’s not amazing details, but it is necessary for the security trade. Much of the lecture gets on safeguarding proprietary information for your customers. He discusses hazard evaluations, securing living locations, as well as surveillance as well as counter-surveillance. There was likewise a brief section on hotel option with scenes inside a resort before ending up the lecture back at the podium with black background.
I did locate that this third disc finished a little bit suddenly at 1:55:50. There was no genuine verdict, the program simply mosted likely to some resources for added details.
Regardless of the lack of food selections, scene option, as well as “flash” many DVDs include, I found this set to be really insightful with fundamental info that is incredibly important for the executive defense expert. It’s not amazing or attractive, however certainly essential for the job.
Along with the 3 DVDs, Hawk East has actually put together a huge workbook to accompany the video discussion. Like the DVDs, the workbook is no fuss, but full of helpful information. It’s not truly a publication, however instead a huge three ring binder containing lots of “phases” on numerous subjects. It’s even more like the workbook/binders you receive when participating in a workshop our training course, instead of a message book. The web pages have a photo duplicate look, yet are still dark and also understandable. No matter style, it’s the information that is essential, and there is a whole lot here.
