Bodyguard heels

March 4 2008

Their weapons - not just smile. They know how to shoot, drive a car in extreme situations, know a few language and martial arts. At the same time they continue to be women.

They may be gray shadow of his client, or vice versa, distracting elements, deliberately emphasizing their sexuality. In the arsenal of female bodyguard, there are three compelling advantages. Intuition, knowledge of psychology and the effect of surprise. Still - not everyone would think that the fragile-looking girl in a second can transform into a being capable of knock brain. Sometimes they play the role of administrative assistant, translator, friends, housekeepers, governesses for children, business partners, and even mistresses. Woman less than a man, is perceived as a bodyguard. Because of it does not expect serious resistance or aggression.

Their task is not even protect the client, and to prevent any attack. The main thing for the bodyguard did not shoot straight, and be able to recognize the man, posing a potential threat. And if women are the best in the world of suicide, then deal with them should be people with similar ways of thinking. Hence, women.

A female bodyguard to the last instinctively tries to avoid conflict. She therefore minimizes the risk to the client. Fires "maternal instinct" that plays a role in choosing a female bodyguard.

Proved that the girl's bodyguard find hidden bugs and hidden cameras faster than male colleagues. Using the very intuitive. At the first Open Cup of Russia among the bodyguards of the jury was surprised by the speed with which the girls found in the room "bug". For 20 minutes, given it took them only 20 seconds. Nothing, except women's intuition, no explanation of this fact can not.

They are more unpredictable and more subtle. They narrow shoulders suddenly appear from behind the rulers of States, businessmen and showbiz stars, accompanying clients everywhere. From social events to the toilet. One of the great advantages of female bodyguards, it's easy access to places, "closed" for the Board of the male. Only a woman can enter into the women's locker room in the ladies toilet in a specialty store for women, without causing suspicion. Most women are engaged in personal guard known as "lichku, a VIP-guests.

Natural selection

But out of a hundred willing, professional bodyguards are only five of the girl.

First aspirant offers to fill in questionnaires and to solve the puzzles of logic. Remaining after the first round will run for endurance, or a test of survival. Jogging with push-ups, squats and jumps. Further, special training lasts approximately three months. Shooting skills and martial arts to aching muscles, lessons on makeup and style classes in psychology, ethics, medicine, and training for fighting in a kimono and miniskirts.

Standards of fitness, of course, differ from men's. But judge for yourself - it's about 30 push ups, 30 abdominal exercises, 10 pull-ups. Add to this test of endurance and answers to the questions of the psychologist.

If you are up to 37 but not less than 20, you are ready to give up his personal life, work 12 hours a day, sometimes at night, holidays and weekends, all to spend free time in training and in the gym - hence his bodyguard profession for you.

Teach it in special schools, except that contact these schools to find a surprisingly difficult.

rihodyat back and former athlete, and want to jump married housewives, and romantic young lady, obsmotrevshiesya "Nikita", and police officers. In general - the most ordinary women. Requirements for height, weight, leg length hair and no one makes. But But with poor eyesight and health problems in the protection are not taken.

Just when the interview is crucial presence of children. A married woman with a child can never become a professional bodyguard

They know where to find the vulnerable points, the impact of which may cause loss of consciousness, muteness or death. And what a blow with the open palm sensitive punch that the ears can enter the enemy "to a screeching halt, and the heel-pin pack a healthy man in a hospital bed with a concussion. And what better to gouge your eyes with your thumbs - in depth and in different directions. And for evening dresses are not just a handbag, shoes and necklaces. And a special holster for small caliber weapons with which you can shove a gun in her bra or on your hip.

Romance without the romance

Bodyguard, as a rule, does not work with one client over a year. Getting used to the situation it is difficult to catch any breeze. If the client is a real risk, we have to even sleep with him in one room. Although about love bodyguards and the client is legendary, a romance between a boss and a bodyguard is not valid. In decent agencies Bodyguard forbidden to maintain any relationship with customers after the "order". This professional is trying to prevent as little as possible personal contact. For the "romantic" relationships in the workplace can just dismiss. A film "The Bodyguard" with Kevin Costner, as well as examples of Princess Diana and the younger daughter of the princely couple Stephanie of Monaco, who succumbed to his manly charms of the guard, just a beautiful fairy tale that has no place in a harsh reality. Women are still at school entry are asking: Do you have an intimate relationship with a client? And if the answer is: "yes" or "it depends" - this young lady is shown on the door.

Many professional bodyguard, before signing the contract, work out with the client test day. If there is persistent antipathy - to refuse to work. Bodyguard should not follow the tastes of the client. When the boss says: "Help me carry a bag," the bodyguard may refuse him in this. Hands should be free. Although the Russian master's attitude towards the protection of happened a long time. In Brezhnev's administration, for example, the guards wore a folder with business papers, and it was considered normal. Foreign delegations were surprised when the guard was fed Gromyko to sign intergovernmental agreements.
