    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Does Hatsumi really have bodyguards?

    I heard that at his seminars, Hatsumi actually has an entourage of bodyguards. Is this true? Someone told me that he has guys wearing suits and earphones that act as though they're Kevin Costner.

    Why does he need bodyguards? Does anyone really think someone's going to attack him? This isn't 15th century japan.

    And anyway, if he is T3H D3ADLY then can't he take care of himself?

    This is really the first time I've evr heard of martial arts teachers having bodyguards at their events.

    Friends who have been to taikais. Apparently no-one is allowed to get too close to him at taikais and there are bodyguards to prevent this.

    When he was touring regularly for Tai Kais it wasn't unheard of for some Buj folks with professional security training to act as security for the events and personal security for Hatsumi.

    Hatsumi is a skilled martial artist, but he's no fool. No one person of any level of fame at a public event should assume that they are perfectly safe because they are "too bad ass for security."

    Any public figure that has any reason to suspect someone might want to start an altercation with them should have security. Even if you can take care of yourself, its usually worth the price to have someone else assume the legal liability for getting in a physical confrontation.

    Especially when they are trained for conflict and you are not .

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Most venues also have security requirements for events related to their insurance policites.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.
