My new client is employed in close-protection work and wanted to improve his CPD with specific hard skills. Tuesday night saw hour one of his course.
Having discussed the fundamentals of personal security (attitude, awareness and legal), we covered the concepts of the fence.

Next, we moved onto weapon selection, going for a rear hand straight palm. I went through the basic mechanics in order to improve impact. We also assessed the difference between plastic and elastic force.
