Free eBook: 101 Tips on How to Be a Bouncer: Techniques to Handle Situations Without Violence

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.

I have worked a few doors/rooms in AZ.

Old Long Wong's on Mill, was my favorite- live music, cheap/strong drinks and unique blend of people. Fun job if you like waitresses and bartenders:) Drunks are usually easy to deal with, key is don't take anything personal and get people laughing. Humor can derail most situations... if not have back-up and get the drama outside. Never fight with a drunk, it's too easy to knock them out, opening yourself up for criminal charges or lawsuits


thanks for this. Good stuff.

Three simple rules:

One, never underestimate your opponent. Expect the unexpected.
Two, take it outside. Never start anything inside the bar unless it's absolutely necessary.
And three, be nice.

If somebody gets in your face and calls you a @#$sucker, I want you to be nice. Ask him to walk. Be nice. If he won't walk, walk him. But be nice. If you can't walk him, one of the others will help you, and you'll both be nice. I want you to remember that it's a job. It's nothing personal.

Being called a @#$@#$sucker isn't personal?

No. It's two nouns combined to elicit a prescribed response.

Is she?
