Free eBook: 101 Tips on How to Be a Bouncer: Techniques to Handle Situations Without ViolenceSubmitted by Ed Thinking on Wed, 07/02/2014 - 13:51
So you’re a black belt, bodybuilder and think you have all the skills it takes to be a bouncer, huh?
If you want to become a professional ‘crowd controller’ who can handle situations effortlessly and with as little violence as possible then you are intelligent enough to recognize the importance of mastering the techniques in this book.
With the nightlife industry becoming so heavily regulated and more and more venues taking a hard line on their ‘no hit’ policies, the nightlife security industry has dramatically changed since the old days of gorilla bouncers throwing people into trash bins, and therefore by necessity new skills have evolved.
The author has over a decade of experience in the security industry and set out on a quest to codify the most workable techniques in nightlife security and educate others on their use to handle situations effectively, but with as little violence as possible. The author credits his background as a lawyer with many grueling years of experience in dispute resolution as his influence for many of the techniques outlined in this book which require a subtle, yet highly effective method of gaining compliance in oppositional situations.
This book is the culmination of many years of trial and error by the author in learning the most practical and workable techniques of crowd control and learning from the wisdom of veteran security professionals and police officers.
These time-tested techniques have been specifically designed for kindle readers in an easy to learn format of 101 tips, which can be accessed through an interactive contents page for fast access in those times when you find yourself hiding in the bathroom wondering why on earth you ever got into this industry.
Just a few techniques you will learn in this book include:
- Canned routines from experienced crowd controllers on how to refuse people entry and conduct evictions which are easy to learn and put into practice;
- Multiple ways to gain leverage in confronting situations by using your environment; and
- How to control situations verbally and use a little known ‘Jedi trick’ which demands compliance.
