The six IBA skills

According to the education method of IBA one of bodyguards have to hase six skills for safe and prodessional bodyguard activity. We are going to conjure up from James G. Short of General Director " IBA Notes" writing:
"Lusien Ott lay three principle in connection with effective method of bodyguarding in the following are:

1. Conclusion of principal the earlier Special Forces used to this principal is:"Dilettantes never able to teach you to procreate"

2. It is necessary to make a regulation based on Military SOP ( Standard Operation Procedures ) and a Basic course for the IAS ( Immidiate Action Drills ) for bodyguards.

3. “Always invite Murphy to the party”. In all your planning, introduce the’X’ factor. Plan for things to fail,
and things to go wrong. Introduce contingencies that take account of Murphy’s Law.

Assessing the threat

A bodyguard takes responsibility for another person’s self defence. Normally the words ‘self defence’ conjure up images of aggressive Asian athletics. Far from it. Self defence is coping with threat in your environment – the management of danger or threat.
An examination of anyone’s environment will show four distinct areas of human activity: home, work, leisure, and the link between the three, travel. The general and specific threats that exist for your client in these four areas have to be examined. The threat emanates from criminals whose motivation may range from politics to profit. The term ‘terrorist’ is greatly abused by the media. One moment he is a fiend because his politics are not the same as the editor’s; next moment it’s a case of ‘one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.’
" Terrorism should never be defined by motive, only method. Ideas don’t kill or maim, actions do. A person is a terrorist by what he does, not by what he thinks. It doesn’t matter to the victim whether the author of his death or suffering was a mafia hit man, a starry eyed idealist or just an incompetent thief. Criminals always target person or property, but they can be divided into two types. There are the professionals, who seek an opportunity for their crime. And there are the casuals, who seize the opportunity for crime...."

Managing the threat

To manage the threat Lucien Ott established three priorities:

1. Avoidance

2. Escape

3. Confrontation

The terrorist always has the opportunity for advantage since he (or she) determines who, when and where to attack, and in what force. The first priority for the bodyguard must always be to avoid the situation. If, despite your efforts, an attack occurs, then your next priority is to remove the object of the attack – the ‘principal’ – by escaping. Only when there is no opportunity for escape does the bodyguard actually confront the situation.
