What Does a Bodyguard Really Do?
If you ask most people on the street about bodyguards they will respond with the typical answers. â€œBodyguards knock people around.â€ Bodyguards carry guns and other weapons to fend off attacks.â€ â€œBodyguards are big mean people.â€
These statements couldnâ€™t be farther from the truth. In fact, a lot of body guarding is the exact opposite of what the general public thinks. Ehy do we have these perceptions if they are untrue?
Television and rappers are responsible for a lot of what people think of the bodyguards. TV often shows bodyguards as huge, crass men ready to body slam everyone in their paths. The bodyguards are shown pushing and shoving people away from their client for no reason.
Rappers and their bodyguards have a special relationship. The bodyguard is often the loyal fall guy for a rapper guilty of a crime. Have you noticed, the bodyguard always did it? Sometimes they do. Sometimes they donâ€™t. But it is important to get these images out of your head as they are not good representations of true bodyguards.
A lot of body guarding takes place behind the scenes by average size people, male and female, with genius minds. Planning the guard for the client is the most crucial thing a bodyguard does. He has to know where the client will be, what he will be doing, who the audience will be, as well as run through scenarios of possible threats. It takes a lot of work and concentration to be able to plan a day of body guarding.
Most bodyguards are not 300 pound men with gold chains. Who played the bodyguard in the classic Whitney Houston Movie â€œThe Bodyguardâ€? It was Kevin Costner. He was hardly the stereotypical bodyguard. He was however the average real life bodyguard.
Bodyguards are not rude. It is important to note that bodyguards are highly loyal to their clients and will protect them at all costs. This does not mean they run around throwing people to the side as a rule. Bodyguards are public officials for their clients. Their behaviors reflect on their clients. Therefore, a bodyguard will have a short career if he is rude.
As you can see, bodyguards are quite different than common perception dictates. Do not be negative to them, donâ€™t be scared of them. They are simply businessmenâ€¦with the ability to kill you with two fingers.
