BodyGuard? Un professionista che non si improvvisa


“Qual è la differenza tra la sicurezza in teatro e di singoli personaggi che hai seguito come Ronaldo?”


“Nel caso di un accompagnamento di persone, cosidetto Close Protection, il Security Plan che si andrà a strutturare dovrà considerare infinite incognite e variabili dettate da diversi fattori. Il risk management appunto, è l'analisi del rischio globale e relativa gestione attraverso l'esame degli scenari coinvolti, della strategia di gestione e controllo del rischio, dell'identificazione e valutazione dello stesso, da quello fisico a quello strategico, l'esame dei riferimenti legislativi della security, la strutturazione della funzione della security e le sue interrelazioni interne ed esterne, la collocazione organizzativa nonché la mission.”

Krav Maga is not martial art. It is the only technique recognized worldwide as the art of self-defense. The starting point is defense, there are no rules or competitions, it is not a sports modality, it does not use choreographic movements, not even beautiful The word "Krav" in Hebrew means combat, fight. "Maga" means contact. Krav Maga is very practical. It's all about striking to the weak spots of the body. Eye gouging, punching the nose, going for the chin, the throat, kicking the groin, all these weak spots. The objective is to neutralize the threat as quickly and as efficiently as possible. That's the goal. That's what Krav Maga is.
