Doormen and bouncers deal with potential violent confrontations every night they’re working, and that makes their experiences and insights super-valuable to the rest of us.
In this first instalment of ‘Tales from the Door’ I pick the brain of my friend, training partner and long-time bouncer Chad Skands.
Some of the topics we cover include…
- Specific strategies to de-escalate a situation verbally
- How to keep your hands up in a non-confrontational manner
- Preemptive techniques to ambush your opponent if you figure the attack is inevitable
- Why Chad prefers the short choke over the rear naked choke from standing
I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I enjoyed filming it for you!
