Wild Geese Martial Arts
Wild Geese Martial Arts (AIKI-JUTSU style) “Security Guard Self Defence Training Program”, prescribes the simple, practical and easy-to-remember basic manoeuvres and applications of Control and Restraint techniques capable of being used on larger assailants. These include Close-Quarter Defensive tactics, Baton and Handcuffing techniques, Knife Disarm and Arrest techniques. With this we hope to impart essential self-defence skills as are required of Security Guards in the performance of their duties, to develop self-confidence and to promote physical conditioning.
As a security Guard, you may encounter a situation where you need to defend yourself to remove a belligerent customer, detain a suspect, or prevent a theft or vandalism. The likelihood of these types of situations depends on the location and type of business or event you are engaged in.
There are a number of fundamentals in Control & Restraint measure skills. Some must be observed at all times, while others are used in special situations. Where one begins and the other leaves off is difficult to define and can only be determined by the user.
The security guards should receive training specific to the weapons or security-gadgets they carry with them by a certified instructor.
Security Guard Personnel and Law Enforcement Officers need to learn the following defensive skills:
Self Defence Technique
The Security Self-defence Techniques in Wild Geese Martial Arts Methods include more than just physical techniques but also the knowledge necessary to reduce incidents of attack on the security guard personnel, how to respond to an attack and finally, after overcoming the attack, how to take the offender safely and humanely into custody. Thus, in Wild Geese Security Self-defence go hand in hand with Arrest Control Restraint Techniques.
Security Guard personnel must have the necessary skills in basic security self-defence techniques training, in order to be able to defend themselves from almost any form of attack, and to build self confidence, control, timing, speed and agility, which will pave the way for the application of control & restraint techniques, and finally the application of handcuffing techniques on the offender.
Control & Restraint Techniques.
Security Guard personnel should be trained in the various Security Control & Restraint techniques. In this way they will be able to carry out an arrest successfully and in a professional manner, without causing bodily injuries to neither the culprit nor the security guard. However, without the security self-defence training, the Control & Restraint technique application will not yield the desired results and possible injuries may occur to both the security guard and the offender
Wrist / Arm Control Escort Techniques.
Once a person / offender has been apprehended or subdued, the arresting security guard must “take him in” in order to complete the arrest. If he is drunk, unruly, or potentially dangerous, he must be kept helpless, applying proper restraint or come-along arm-locks make the offender responsive to movement or to other actions by the arresting security guard. A come-along arm-lock or other types of restraint are often used in preparation for handcuffing or other mechanical means of control.
Baton Defence and Offence Techniques.
The Baton in the hands of a security guard is an additional symbol of his authority and implies that he knows how to use it. If he is skilled and practised in its use, he can cope with most situations where force is necessary. Basically the Baton is an offensive weapon. How it is used depends upon the situation. Normally, the security guard personnel or a Law Enforcement Officer should not use the baton to strike blows about the head, this is dangerous and can result to fatal injuries. Wild blows using the full length of the arm in the swing are not as nearly effective as they seem; they leave the user of the baton wide open for the parry and retaliation by the trained opponent. By using the baton as an extension of the arm in conjunction with the basic fundamental “12 strikes and 12 defensive blocks”, it can be used as an effective parrying and striking instrument. The baton can also be used as a lever to apply against wrist, elbow, shoulder, knee and ankle leverage points.
The proper use of handcuffs on various types of offenders requires practice and exercise of good judgement. The handcuffing process can be dangerous for the security guard because it brings them in close proximity of the offender. A security guard who gets one cuff on and then loses control of the subject risks serious injury if the culprit decides to start to swing the handcuff. Since there are many methods of using handcuffs, each offender can be cuffed in a manner which will prevent him attempting to escape or attack, according to the arresting security personnel’s estimate of his dangerous potentialities.
Knife Defence and Disarming Techniques.
The security guard must have the skills to defend himself against a knife attack, cutlass, or a heavy blunt weapon and he should also be able to disarm the offender swiftly and in a professional manner. The same goes for pistol and rifle disarm techniques. Security guards should always be repaired and ready for the inevitable.
Use of Force Assessment and Response Methods.
As Security Enforcement Personnel, you will be confronted with situations that will test your ability to react properly. Experience plays an important part in how you react and having a clear mind plays another vital role. Breathe, Avoid Panic, and mentally step back and assess the situation. Once you are in a fight, mitigate its repercussions. You must not depend on just one favourite technique. Instead you must have the ability to react to any situation with an appropriate technique, you must also be able to change techniques when the situation requires it. Keep an open mind; react to the situation rather than the plan. Realistic rehearsals and force-on-force training are useful for developing flexibility
Manner of Approach.
This consists of reasoning with the individual. All too often an antagonist approach merely aggravates the situation and leads to the use of force which might otherwise have been prevented. Application of common sense in a courteous but firm manner and basic leadership principles are essential in the initial approach to any situation.
