Running for you life. Rotating a VIP
As it has been already told in a chapter about a fast evacuation it is possible to reach good speed of movement during evacuation when a VIP and a bodyguard move together faced in the same direction.
And here as it might be said ‘one second before’.
This is a situation of an emergency evacuation but a VIP is located in front of a bodyguard face to face to him and before running away it is necessary to rotate a VIP fast and accurately.
We use a mnemonic rule “push and pull” in trainings for bodyguards. Starting with a distance as close as arms outstretched a bodyguard pushes a VIP’s shoulder with one hand and pulls his opposite shoulder using his other hand.
As a result a controlled and fast rotation of a VIP’s body happens. After this rotation a bodyguard immediately starts one of those methods of movement which we highlighted in our previous issues.
