That is the one thing about security training in California there is no Defensive Tactics training required by BSIS. I have done training for security personnel on topics such as handcuffing, ground control, empty hand had defense/offense. Basically what I teach to LEO's minus the firearms.
I think permalost meant that in a cynical way
Meh, I meant it in a neutral way. I wasn't trained to engage people and I didn't have to. The worst I've had to do is yell at some people. Mostly my cynicism is towards (usually fat) guys that talk about their security job like they're some kind of commando killing machine that have to fight knife and gun wielding gangs. I've heard it online and real life.
have you heard the story of the real mall ninjas? they all be SWAT and ****
