About 20% of the security guards who were asked the above question answered with something to do with employment, but 80% had a different answer.
Do you know what their major concern was? Can you guess?
About four fifths of those queried answered with something having to do with safety:
I can’t solve all of your security guard challenges in one shot. I won’t be teaching you self-defense against guard dogs, for example. By the way, shouldn’t the dog be on your side? (I’m not sure why this response was sent in.)
And I think we better leave the firearms training to some of the sites on the Top 50 List.
But there is one area, that I can help you with … a skill that you absolutely need.
It all started long ago, when I had to give an on-the-spot demonstration….
At the 1999 and 2000 seminars, I had “wrist locks encounters.” I’d like to tell you what happened at the Fourth Annual Bruce Lee Memorial Seminar (2000, in Las Vegas), because it relates to security guards….
When my wife and I attended the event, I took as many copies of my book as I could fit in our bag. I really crammed them in, thinking that this seminar might be the perfect opportunity to sell them. Or if not at the seminar, then maybe for a wholesale price to a local bookstore in Las Vegas.
As I attended the classes held by each of the original Bruce Lee students (including my teacher, Steve Golden), I didn’t really see an opportunity to sell my book. And so, I forgot about all the copies in our hotel room. Besides, there was some very cool martial arts going on … especially between classes, in the hallways.
One class we attended, was held by a Filipino martial-arts instructor. Towards the end of his presentation, he did a couple of wrist locks.
I liked the second lock that he did, but worried about the attacker’s free hand.
After the class was over, I politely waited with some of the other attendees, to ask him a question. When it was my turn, I asked. As a response, he locked me, and then told me to reach for him with my other hand.
Instantly, he applied pressure to the lock, which prevented me from moving my free hand.
So, I asked if he was open to me being a little more aggressive in my response. He said, “Sure, go ahead.” And then he wrist locked me again.
This time, I quickly countered by reversing the lock on him, and before he could respond to my reversal, flowed it into a different lock.
His eyes almost bugged out of his head, they were so wide.
Without asking, he put a different lock on me. I countered (and completely surprised him) by turning it into a lock on his opposite hand.
To give him credit, he instantly countered that one. And he did a very good job of it, I might add.
Next, I countered the third exchange in our little sequence.
At that point, recognition washed over his face. He stopped the “play.” And he announced to the crowd that had gathered to watch, “I didn’t recognize him at first.” He turned to me, “But you’re the guy who wrote the book, Wrist Locks, aren’t you?”
I nodded in reply.
Then for about five minutes, we had an open discussion in front of everyone about practical wrist locks for professionals, like security guards, bouncers, and law enforcement officials … complete with demonstrations. Back and forth, back and forth. It was a lot of fun for us, and for the audience, too.
Would you like to know what happened the next day?
Afterwards, someone mentioned my book. And people in the audience asked if, by chance, I had any for sale, with me.
And I had to say, NO.
I was completely sold out of the ones I had brought with me. I had to refer them to my website and offer business cards.
Do you know why we didn’t have any “Wrist Locks: From Protecting …” left in our suitcases?
After the first encounter with the instructor in the Filipino arts of Kali and Escrima, a couple of security guards, from the casino where the Memorial Seminar was being held, cornered me. They had seen and listened to the entire demonstration and discussion.
These guards wanted to know if I had any books for sale, with me. I sold them two, autographing both to the guys … and I guess word spread among security guards at the casino.
Within a day, I had completely sold out of all suitcase copies of Wrist Locks: From Protecting Yourself to Becoming an Expert.
Could that be the reason that I got a nice review in Police and Security News? Here’s an excerpt …
All of that buzz and popularity … and that was back in the first edition of the book.
Now, all of these years later, Wrist Locks has been completely revised and updated … 423 new photographs, full sequences, added locks, 2 bonus chapters, and more. And it’s finally available as a soft cover.
If you are a security guard, a bodyguard, a bouncer, or any other professional that might someday need to restrain an out-of-control person, then you need to be a proverbial wrist-locking expert.
You have to be able to make these locks work. And they have to work at defending and protecting you on the job. By the way, being able to control competently with a joint lock or arm bar will definitely boost your confidence.
If you are a minimum-wage guard, and you intend to stay at that low pay grade, then this book probably isn’t for you.
If, on the other hand, you want to be a higher paid professional in your job, then this may be the only book on the subject that will get you where you want to go with wrist locks.
If you don’t have years to put into classes, if you don’t trust all of the crap that you see in many of the DVDs, and if you really want to lock like an expert … like a professional, then get started now …
This 34-page ebonus was created just for this offer. With this information, you can let “the other guys” have the minimum-wage jobs. You’ll command a much higher salary, simply because you’ll have more to offer.
Discover where to find high-paying security-guard jobs … maybe even in your area. Find out everything that will set you apart from your low-earning counterparts.
This is not a book that is going to try to sell you on some security-guard program. You are getting actual advice on how to develop better skills that are worth more.
