KMG VIP / Third Party Protection Training
Krav Maga defensive tactics, fighting skills, and CQB training for VIP Protection Units
Third Party Protection or VIP Protection is one of the pillars of Krav Maga training. In its civilian self-defense curriculum, KMG includes basic protection of a third party (a family member, child, friend, etc.), where principles and techniques for self-defense are applied to the protection of others.
For professionals, KMG VIP Protection Training provides a comprehensive program developed over decades of work in the field. Our Experts have trained close protection officers (CPOs) and security teams for various government sectors as well as private clients. We prepare CPOs with the tactical, technical, physical, and mental skills designed for the protection of a VIP in armed and unarmed combat situations. We also provide training for a unit or organization’s in-house instructors on how to teach and train CPOs and their supporting teams.
Why Do CPOs Need Krav Maga?
In many countries, CPOs rely on the use of firearms to carry out their duties in a conflict situation or an attack on principal (AOP).
However, as many CPO professionals know, there are numerous situations where firearms cannot be deployed in protection of a VIP. Some examples include: a) illegality of firearms carriage in certain countries or states; b) when the level of conflict does not legally allow the use of a firearm; c) when it is too dangerous to use a firearm; or d) when deployment of firearm would be too slow or too late. In these cases, CPOs need to possess unarmed combat and defensive tactics and skills in order to effectively do their job.
KMG Krav Maga VIP Protection Program focuses on training CPOs and security professionals to deploy appropriate solutions against all kinds of attacks and threats, from non-violent, non-lethal circumstances to violent and life-threatening situations. Furthermore, KMG training covers mental conditioning for performance and correct decision-making under mental duress (i.e. minimal light, surprise situations, injury, etc.).
