Moving Someone Through a Crowd:
Practical Exercises for Martial Artists by Keith Pascal
~ Bodyguard Training ~ 2
Apologies to the Bodyguards of the World Are the following exercises practical? Yes, definitely. Was this book written by a professional martial artist? Yes, to that question too. And are these real bodyguard training exercises? Weeeeeell.... Not quite. I tried. I have had some contact with professional bodyguards. And I am a martial artist. So, I set out to write a report for martial artists on one aspect of bodyguarding. When I fininshed, I sent it out for review to a variety of martial artists. All the pure martial artists thought it was great. And a man who runs a professional bodyguard service in Hawaii also wrote in with his approval...
You are in charge of caring for someone. If you have a choice, you want to move in what is called off-peak time. You want to move your charge when nobody is around. Often, this involves being patient. You wait until everyone is gone. Then you move. Note: Of course, the disadvantage is that you don’t have any cover. You may have to move out in the open. You will need to weigh the two choices. Maybe a compromise — move when the crowd has thinned, but folks are still around. Sometimes, you don’t have the luxury of moving your client, when it’s convenient. On occasion, you will have to move him/her through crowds. So, how do you train for this?
I have three exercises for you to try in this e-booklet. One is an awareness exercise to learn to move efficiently through a crowd. The second exercise deals with threats from behind. And the last exercise answers the question, “What do I do, if someone from the crowd starts to grab for my client?” No, this e-book won’t instantly turn you into a killer bodyguard. It is not a complete training manual. You need proper martial arts training, more specific bodyguard training, and you need to know the law.
Neither Kerwin Benson Publishing, the author, nor anyone associated with the production, promotion, or distribution of this book will be held liable for the information provided. Each circumstance you may encounter is different. Professionals need to use their expert judgement to make instant decisions. Do what it takes to become professionally trained. Still, these are very valuable exercises. They should be carefully considered before discarding them.
Finding a Wave in the Crowd If you are going to move your charge successfully through a crowd, you need every advantage that you can get. You need a little breather room.
Most people are content to move a few inches at a time, with their bodies almost pressed up against the members of the “herd” in front of them. Occasionally, my wife and I exhibit herd instincts too, but not usually.... We find the little pockets of space in the crowd. We look ahead; we plan a little. We scope out those spaces in front of us. Then, by adjusting our speed, and constantly tweaking our angle of movement forward, we are able to ride these “waves.”
Our little pocket of space eventually peters out, but not before we find the next pocket to jump into. This way, we move quickly and efficiently, and nobody touches us, and we don’t bump into anyone else. Boy do we “cook” — we really get moving. And guess what? It doesn’t tick anyone off, because we don’t bump into anybody.
Very cool.... The article then relates this wave back to dealing with a single opponent. It gives you a practical application for this in a fight situation. So, let’s break this exercise into stages. In Stage One, you practice moving on your own through a crowd.
Find a crowded place, like the examples in the article, or maybe in an inbetween- class school atmosphere,a crowded shopping mall, or a flea market. Now, learn how to find those pockets. Get really good at moving. Not as though you were in a hurry. You want to move confidently, yet quickly through the crowd. One of the main goals is to move quickly without drawing undue attention from folks in the crowd. Move too quickly, and everyone will notice you...
